    I was wondering if an Integra Type-R cap bridge will fit on a B18B1 block. I heard it can be done with a little modification, but... :huh:

    Thanks for everyone's help!!!! :worthy:

    The girdle? If you're talking about the crank girdle, it'll go on- but you have to machine the main caps to fit or use the main caps from an ITR.

    I heard that a crank girdle prevents crank walk and strengthens the bottom end...is that true...what is the damn thing used for.

    That's why I wanna use it...

    I saw an article awhile ago about how to make this work, does anyone have a link to this?

    P.S. I called it a "cap bridge" because acuraautomotiveparts.org calls it that. I thought it was called a crank girdle too.

    All you have to do to make it work is get the main caps from a GSR/ITR block and install them w/the girdle and have it align bored.

    There are a number of aftermarket girdles available too.

    I tried ordering main caps for my H23, and Honda told me that I couldn't just order them, I'd have to buy the whole block. Where do you order just the main caps from?

    What companies make aftermarket girdle's? :huh:

    Thanks everyone!!! :worthyp: :worthyp: :worthyp:

    nobody has mentioned that if you choose to use a girdle you MUST use..

    ITR/GSR oil pan, windage tray and oil pickup...on either OEM or aftermarket girdles.
    so add that into the budget if you wanna go that route.
