    Ok so i just rebuilt my jdm b18c and put b16 pistons in it and i have gone about 150 miles and my car is still smoking? Do you guys think the rings need a little more breakin time or what. My car has never been over 65mph or over 3400 RPMs so what do you guys think?

    Rings did not set. You did something wrong. Mine smoked twice and not a lot. Have you done a comp. Test?

    No, my car is at the shop getting a few things done,ill see if they will do one for me since they have it there. Do you know by chance an estimate would be per cylinder? Before the piston swap it was 240. Now with the b16 pistons in there im not sure what i would call a good number?
