    I have a b17 and was thinking about putting a integra R crank in to stroke it, but was curious if i still use the b17 rods or what rods should i use? thanks

    youll need custom rods: ~128.97mm length.

    the shortest b-series rod is the b17(131.87mm) and is too long.

    Swapping the rods in will probally push the pistons into the head, that or you might have a very high compression ratio. Just swapping the pistons will work fine and bump compression up(probally around 10.7:1, which is very good and still very streetable).
