    Greetings forums,

    First off I hope this is the right section in the forums, but as you see I bought a car and the engine was basically unusable.
    It's an Honda Civic 1996 EK4 Sir with a JDM B18C swapped engine.
    The reason I've made this thread is because I need someone to help me with the parts I picked to tell me if everything is correct.

    If I'm not allowed to post links please notify me, in any case these are the parts I selected off ebay.com

    Eagle Forged 4340 Crankshaft for B18 B18C B20B B20Z 1500hp Rated 1835041772 | eBay


    Honda B18C Vtec GSR; CP Pistons / Eagle Rods / TMS Head Studs / Cometic Gasket | eBay

    the rod length is 5.430
    and the crankshaft stroke is 3.5040
    Thanks in advance and hopefully I get some replies.

    What are you trying to do with the car?

    The aftermarket crankshaft really isn't necessary. OEM Honda crankshafts have been known to last well over 700hp safely.

    I couldn't find a website that sold OEM Honda crankshafts
    so I decided to go full forged build
    and in time I'll go turbo
    are the crankshaft and rods a perfect match though?

    I cna't view ebay from my work right now....

    if the crank is a stroker design or otherwise alters the stroke length, the rod length to use will be different. They must match.

    But as above, you pretty much don't need to replace the crank. just do rods/pistons.
