i believe its the z6 rods that work. TT z6 rods and vitara pistons will yeild 9.18 compression. perfect for turbo, and can make some serious horsepower

i believe the stroke on a jdm D15B is shorter than the Z6..... but dont quote me on that

yea vitaras and z6 rods work in the JDM d15b.

9.18 is just about the stock CR in the JDM d15b so its really not lowereing comp at all.

the JDM is though to have a shorted deck heigth then other motors nobody has confirmed/denied it.

speking of JDM d15b im gona go finish puthing mine in lol peace!

Use new bearings, the clearences probebly won't be right with the new rods and old bearings.

Use new bearings. Crower rods have the bearing color codes on them.
