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
