or are the B16 pistons a smaller diameter?
something has to make the .4 liter diffrence
and i thought you can't stack headgaskets?
ahhhhh, shorter rods = lower compression = motor built for turbo
and wow, everything is teh GENUINE JDM HONDA
B16A 81mm bore
B20B/Z 84mm bore
b16 rods/pistons won't work in a b20 bottom end. b20 rod length is 137mm and the b16 rod length is 134mm (except for the b16b, I think it's a little different). btw, isn't the bore size of a b20, 84.5mm?
oh and stacking head gaskets is ok, just don't reuse your old one, replace it with a new head gasket.
Motor = Risky. I would not buy a car from ebay, with an engine swap, with things that look "fishy" if I couldnt even drive it first.
I know a guy that bought a B20z/VTEC for his car. The shit never ran right, and the motor was a POS. Supposed to be a great motor with new valvetrain, and rebuilt block.....yeah right. POS.
Would I buy it?
Sure you could use the B16 rods and pistons in the B20... you would just have zero compression.
Escrow pwns you
well lower compression is better for boost
Is that piston slap I here?
Hell ya, he could run 9,000,000,000 psi yO!!!
I keep thinking about him starting the motor to show someone he is selling it to and hearing the pistons just flopping around, hahaha.
