    Tech43 has a pretty nice kit- they allow you to use the stock LS crank and rods with a set of their custom pistons.

    That crower set is pretty nice, but still - 2.5k is too much.

    If you really want to stroke ur motor, look into using an LS crank and such as Calesta suggested.

    word. stroker kits are a waste of cash, fuck up the oem geometry, and really don't give you that much more power.

    whole bottom end will work. LS block/bottom end with a B16/GSR head.

    Or you could get aftermarket rods and pistons on the LS crank.

    Gut your LS bottom end, toss the B16 crank in it. Get some custom aftermarket rods and 12:1 pistons.

    You got yourself a rev-happy oversquare 1.6l

    10k rpm is WELL within reach as long as you do headwork.

    Oh, you're so right... what was I thinking making the engine oversquare...

    Thanks for showing me the errors of my ways.

    2.0 in a 1.6 block is the WAY to go for MAD HP!!

    Oversquare--An engine with a bore longer than its stroke. Most postwar motors have an oversquare design. Oversquare engines can rev higher, but at the expense of low-end torque. An oversquare engine will typically produce more horsepower and less torque than an undersquare one.


    i think its the def of a b16.....more of a road corse engine.....right or wrong...?
