    Do you want forged pistons? Or are you going OEM?

    If you go OEM, go with B16 pistons. Fit with no mods onto B18 r LS rods. Either P30 or CTR pistons will work well. But need to get block honed for oversize to prevent pistons slap.

    Where did you find PR3's for $15 a piece? (I am assuming that you are including machine shop charges of around $40 for pressing the pistons).

    Your way done for the cheapest price I can find is
    $250 for just the pistons on LS rods with ARP bolts.
    $40 a piece for pistons, $40 to have them pressed, $50 for ARP rod bolts.

    My way is $800, but you get tougher rods and better pistons plus you don't have to have them pressed.
    y0!

    What is piston slap and how does a hone job stop it? If it's not to hot where you are yes get CTRs.

    If I had that kind of hookup, I would be running honda internals still. That is one hell of a deal. My piston price ($40 each) does not include rings.
