    Ok well I bought a set of B16A pistons on LS rods with Total Seal rings, now what do I do about Head Gasket (OEM?, MR Gasket 34.99), Water Pump (B16A 44.99, or sotck LS is like 34.99), OEM Head Bolts (7x10=$70) or ARP Studs ($105) Just go with OEM or buy the performance shit? Im so confused. Someone help

    OEM head gasket
    LS water pump (I think you match water pump to block, not 100% sure)
    ARP studs

    You match the water pump to the timing belt that you are using. Since there is no reason for you to run the VTEC water pump (you won't be spinning past 7000 RPM) use the LS water pump and timing belt. Other than that, what he said. :)

    I would run the vtec water and oil pumps, as far as a place to get arp stuff there is another post with a link on it under this forum or the general forum.


    and lsvtecis correct on matching the pump to the belt.
