    aren;t b16 rods a lot shorter than B20?

    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
    thats greaaatttttt
    lol

    vvvv :worthy:

    :werd:

    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.

    Looks = :thumbsup:

    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? :no:

    Sure you could use the B16 rods and pistons in the B20... you would just have zero compression.

    :lmao:

    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.
