    ls rods + gsr pistons = +1 compression
    you need to shave the sides of the ls pistions to have them fit the gsr pistons. I'd keeps LS parts throughout the rest of the bottom end.

    In short, you should not attempt this.

    I never said it wouldn't work. I said YOU shouldn't attempt this... meaning I don't think you have the know how to assemble a reliable engine.

    So with that said, do you have any experience assembling an engine... any at all?

    if you have the gsr internals, yes they'll fit inside the ls block, to keep things simple, use gsr rods with the gsr crank and ls rods with the ls crank if you're gonna use either of those or else you need to visit a machine shop

    lol :werd: Honda was gonna hire me straight outta high school. I mean I knew how to work on cars and do swaps but by no means was I ready or had the knowledge to build a good, reliable motor.
