    Before I drop my engine in to my civic, I want to tare down the engine, have the cylenders honed for new forged pistons and rings and have the head worked over. I'm having trouble finding pistons and valves for the type r motor. I can only find stuff for the type s. My queston is can I get the type s pistons and valves and put them in my type r motor with no problems? If the type s pistons will work, I want to get Wiseco 11.7:1 pistons. The 11.7:1 is the closes I can find to the K20's stock 11.5:1 compression ratio.

    TIA,
    Thomas

    Before you go through all the hassle of doing that...
    Whats your plan for the motor? Are you going to be running NA or Boost/Spray?

    If your just going to run NA, why bother changing out to Forged pistons?
    I would focus mostly on headwork.
