    hi, i was wondering....if the ls (b18b g2) is in good shape would i still have to hone in the walls or can i just do a quick piston swap. i mean good shape as in...it still runs strong and has been leak down compression tested and still has close to stock compression and no leaks whatsoever. and no scars.
    i just need advice from people who's done this before.
    thanks

    I have never done it myself, but I have quite a few friends that swap pistons all the time and they at least do a quick little hone job before installing them.

    Always hone your walls to make sure your new rings have something to wear in against and lubricate themselves with.

    You should be fine. Send it out to a machine shop with the pistons and they can get it all lined up.
