Hey guys before i go boosting the little D, I think i would rather build the internals to handle the boost.
So i have the JDM D15B and i will be pushing air via a T25Turbo from a Nissan S13. What brand and pistons do i buy for my D15B engine?

vitara's seem to be pretty damn good. And for rods FJ or eagle. Or you could search the 87345893475894 turbo build threads, they have tons of answers for your questions.

What are some part numbers of the pistons and rods that would work on my car? I want to search for them and do some reading, as i dont know what the hell to buy.

yep fj makes custom length rods that brings vitaras up to stock compression levels on jdm d15b vtec

anything else and you'll have like 7:1 compression

The d15b block + eagle/vitara the pistons will sit above deck height.

You have to use custom rods for the jdm d15b.

You also cant use the d16z6 main bearings. You have to use the d15b7 ones.

Im building a jdm d15b as we speak (well not right right now lol)

You CAN use vitaras with eagle rods in a JDM D15B using a thick cometic headgasket. C'mon guys this has been covered 100000000000 times on at least 4 different sites.

Do we need a separate section for the D15B here like the DOHC ZC?

That is fine.

It's true, you use a thicker head gasket for the eagle/vitara setup.

But you can also use the oem head gasket and custom rods. I think doing it this way is cheaper. Plus you have the option of I beams or H beams (like the eagle)

you only need the thicker HG on a Y8 head with closed chambers

Vitaras stick out about .018" in a D15B, my P29's stick out A LOT further!

an alternative to forged rods is the much liked, but no so commonly known "ceramic dip" there is a company that sells a mixture of a clay (the clay comes from Greece somewhere) and carbon/epoxy compound. try searching for it. it's well worth it.


edit: joke. vitaras and fjts.
