Default d17a1

So I have a d17a1 I could grab from the shop i work at, I searched up the rod lengths and bore sizes, the a1 is .0076mm shorter then the y8 rods, which is what i have right now. So my question is am i able to use the same vitara pistions and custom length rods as my y8? if so is there still notching required to the block? or are there different connecting rods bolts i could use aside from the arp2000 ones? which dont require block notching?

You can't used d16 rods in a d17. There are d17 forged rods you can buy for about $400 a set IIRC

Cheapest way to build the block:
Grab a D16 crank and figure out how to get the oil/timing shit to function.
Custom Length Rods + Vitara's.

Should be cheaper than a full forged D17 set-up and have a better R/S for happy revving.

Easiest way to do it is buy parts for a d17a1.

The biggest issue in my mind is that the D16/D17 piston compression height is way different. The rod length and deck height is essentially the same between the 2 blocks - it's the compression height of the piston that compensates for the longer stroke of the D17.
