I've been reading up about LS Rods in D-series and notice comments saying that the bushings required to fit stock D-series pistons are no longer sold by Crower.
Are they sold by any other supplier, and if not, does it reduce the viability of that option?

Probably SOL as the honda scene for the old Dseries engines are almost 2 decades old.


Im sure Bseries are still around from japan and probably still a few floating around..


but both were as abundant as they were 10-15yrs ago.


Id try Laskey racing or speedfactory and see where they can point ya

Why even bother when you can get a full rod and piston set for $375? By the time you bought the bushing then paid the machine shop to cut them down, you just about paid for p2p0 rods that will support double the hp.

also true... it'd be like running a panda setup now

(now there's an oldschool OE rotating assembly frankenstein :p)

Yea, I was checking them out too....but I have easy access to those LS Rods and machining is cheap where I live.

I simply took mine to the machine shop. They got the bushings and installed them themselves.

so you want to take a risk on oem rods that are modified to work for about the same cost as drop in rods that only need to be inspected and perhaps weight-matched within a few grams at a machine shop?

the LS rod shit is only good if you already have the rods, and are guaranteed straight and undamaged.

Never take unnecessary chances with the engine. saving a few bucks can turn into a new motor real quick unfortunately

You gotta be kidding me!!! I threw mine out in Feb. I had them made about 5 years ago for a motor i never finished. Did you try to contact DJ (I think) at Crower? If he's not with them anymore, they might be able to steer you in the right direction. I wish I could have given you mine. My FS thread with them is probably buried.

If you can do the machine work, I can give you the dimensions.
LS rods will give you a much lighter rotating assembly-some of us care about laws of physics

Yea, I'd like the dimensions....I got in contact with Crower and they told me that if I could supply the dimensions, they could supply me.

Because we wanna run stock piston options with stronger rods

BOOM ROASTED
This.....I don't have massive power goals in mind...so I wanted a simple, cost effective 250 whp build.

j/w, aside from vitaras, what stock pistons have 19mm floating wristpins?














that fit in a d-series engine?
