    im not sure on the length of rods... for B17 and itr but if you use hte pistons it will net you 10.4:1 compression. with a 3 layer headgasket.

    the head flows better and if you are getting the cams too that will give you more power.

    The Type R crank, GS-R crank, and LS crank along with their respective rod combinations will not fit inside your B17 block. The B17A is a bit of an oddball just like the B16A in the respect that it's block is physically 9mm shorter than 1.8 and 2.0 B-series blocks. Short of a stroker kit for the B16 or B17, you're out of luck for increasing stroke.
