well im back into the d-series game. i tried to search but the term is too small to find anything.

i want to be clear on this, my memory is kinda foggy after all these years.

was it a 96-00 civic gx piston that was able to mate with an LS rod into an a6 without the use of the bushing kit and retained a compression ratio of about 10.1-10.5 in an otherwise stock a6 motor?

What's the length on LS rods? 137mm? 137mm with p29s puts you at 10.8:1 with a stock head gasket, 11.1:1 with a y8 gasket.....

yes, ls rods are the same length as d16 rods. but, iirc, you can't use gx pistons with stock d16 rods. the gx ones had a bigger be like that of a b-series, if memory serves. but since its late, i will NOT look it up for the OP. maybe tomorrow, if one of the other guys don't jump in here with the exact info.

i dont want to use p29 pistons or d16 rods...im trying to figure out the combo that was suppose to be like what ive described above.

b18a/b rods
96-00 Civic GX pistons

apparently they can be mated without any modification/machining and will work on an otherwise stock d16. im just trying to make sure.

youre right, they have to be milled .022" on each side of the rod to fit the d16 crank.
