no one does.

why dont u buy a set and tell us about them?

maybe all these threads popping up will speed up FJT's progress ;)
I really want to, my B7 project has been setting for months waiting for rods..but I just dont know how legit that guy is I would like to wait for fj but im kinda getting tired of waiting.

thats was my plan if fj didntt get his act together but every 1 i talk to w/ a jdm d15 crank either wants to much or it had a spun bearing and i dont want to chance it. i almost got a complete jdm d15b block for 25 bucks w/ a bad thrust washer, but again didnt want to risk getting a f'd up crank. i just dont want to spend 100 buck on a used crank when i can get a d16 block for the same price....lol

you havent talked to "every 1" yet. i can say that either the crank i have or the crank mindless has are in good condition. no spun anything ;).

mmm d15bX on big boost :drool:

yes but you are in cali / nv and mindless is in va, shipping alone would make it not worth it even if you sold it for a good price

So with a d15b crankshaft I can run d15b/d16 rods in my b7 with no changes to the b7 block? I would just order the rest of my engine parts as if it were a
d15b?

correct. and for pistons just run whatever. also id think you would need d16 rod bearings and d15 main bearings.

pistons have to be certain height (vitara's pop out a little) so you can't run any piston you want

that is why i said a little (around 0.022), anything over that on height you probably will run into issues, was just using them for reference

Every JDM D15b vtec vitara Ive seen, has either been with the stock JDM D15B vtec head or a Z6 head.(same thing basicly)
There was a guy selling a D15b Vitara block with a y8 head, but he never ran it.

I want to run a y8 head (as I have like 3 possibly more of them!). But Im afraid the pistons might smack the head due to the quench pads+heat+stretch. At least with 137mm rods... FJs custom length D15b rods would be perfect.

I have everything but a rebuild kit...JDM d15b crank, b7 block, y8 heads...
