I've got a question about CTR pistons. I'm in the process of working on a B16A and I have Eagle Rods, and CTR pistons, I've heard somewhere about having to do a rod-mod? anybody know anything about this?

When running Type R pistons in a B16A or B17A you most remove 1mm of material on each side of the small end of the connection rod in order to have sufficient clearance where the rod meets the pistons

You can run CTR's on stock B16/B17/B18A/B rods. No modification required.
 
so which is it? do I need to remove 1mm of material b/c I'm using Eagle H-beam rods, or would it run with stock pistons no mod?

I believe they should fit, no modifications. The best way to tell is stick the rod in the piston and see.
