stock rods work. Compression will be high so a correct tune will minimize the risk of detenation.

but wat power in BHP or KW would i gain?
power depends om more than just compression, stock d16 rods are good for around 200 lbs of torque, much more than any NA build can make

you're limited to around 150 WHP in an unported head

intake and exhaust design have huge effects on overall and peak power

so does the tune and the cam

if the compression is your only mod and everything else is stock you're probably looking at maybe 10 lbs more torque and a few more horsepower

if you're raising the compression, is good to have ARP head studs.
save some ca$h. try to get ZC or 88-89 Integra pistons w/ the rods.
