You dont have to change the internals if you get it tuned right and dont put too much boost in it. should run fine on 8psi

I've always heared the same, if you are going to run 8 psi or less, leave it stock.
i agree and disagree....

you will get tired of the power 8 psi gives you in less than 3 months.....then you will want more.....so then you buy a boost controller and blow up the engine...

i would buy forged piston/rods (9.8:1) and then boost the ride....

better safe than sorry
fuck 8 psi. I'm running 12 psi on my B16A with stock internals all day long with noproblems besides a slipping clutch. That will be changed soon. Feel free to AIM me with all your questions.... ccdamanison. My setup is in my 91 crx si.
