Where to Find Parts

Ok, I'm starting to get serious into my engine build. I know that B18C Intake Cams and B21A Exhaust Cams are supposed to be killer but I want to go deep in to the depths of the engine and get Pistons, Rods, and Valves. I heard B16 pistons are the best, now my question what are some good Rods and Valves I can get and where can I get them? I'm getting ready to start a tubo build on the B20A

Realizing that you have the two bastard engines of the bunch and will spend hours upon hours and years upon years hearing people with dem fancy bigger engines and finishing your build then smoking there ass's - A big ass headache but still priceless....until you wreck it.

Also crower makes rods for us I believe. Aftermarket H23 rods fit In our engine as well.

oh oh, i'll jump on that bandwagon any day. I'm not a fan of that fancy vtec.

i dont know if there are resourse or threads on this already, but what parts from other engines fit in our cars? I know the B16 pistons, B21 cams, B18 Cams and just now learned the H23 Rods. What else will fit?

As mentioned h23 rods will fit and they are a cheap alternative if you don't wish to run "mad boost"
I personally have a set of shot-peened h23 rods for my b20a build. The shot peening process wards off surface fractures (that could lead to more) and strengthens the rods. Highly recommended if you go this route.
I also know that B-16 outer valve springs work.
