    So I blew up a B16A3 a little while ago.. it was suggested that I replace the pistons with some p73's.. which are ITR or CTR pistons right?

    So after a little reading a search function use on hondaswap I keep reading a mixed answer about ITR or CTR pistons fitting on stock B16a3 rods..

    Some posts say that you need to shave down either the Top end of the rod or the inside of the piston to make room and others have been saying that they are a direct fit...

    Please cast some light on my confusion.. thanks..

    If this is a repost please forgive me..

    ITRs or CTRs are a direct replacement. GSRs would require machining.
