type s pistions and rods

ok i felt this did desirve its own topic because when i tried to search for info on type s with the word "type" in there i was baffeled by the maze that forecame.....

again im just trying to do a lil n/a build here and want to cheat and not re-hone and throw new rings (honda oem) back on oem pistions or find a cheap as hell performance pistion to raise my static compresion back up for these high lift cams im going to use

now i found this here H22 Build-Up Information which is kind of a map to http://www.attackforums.com/showthread.php?t=1197 the real juicy insides
which states that the type s 11:1 oem honda pistons can be ran in the h22s with the frm coating....and then he proceeded to say (if you even do need a hone ((like people do this all day))...but perpare your self cost wise for one) just slap new rings on and put the pistions back in is frm really that tough or even better slap new rings on the type s piston.....

ok but are the rods hardened stronger...?
or are these just the jdm rods and pistions out of the jdm h22a???

im still looking but im begging for more information please help me

also id like to know whats gona be the best place to purchase if i can confirm they will not have cleareance issiues with my stage 1 cams here and hi comp valves n stuff.

Re: type s pistions and rods

before you have to block honed look at the piston walls if you can still see the crosshatching you should be fine. If not get the .20 over bore type-s pistons and do work son.

Re: type s pistions and rods

when i looked into the cilinders i did not see any cross hatching or horizontial hatching all saw was pollished frm with a few minor scractes. either way im glad i took the time and extra effort to rip it all out because i really need this motor to last as long as posible.

Re: type s pistions and rods

as far as buying type s pistons, you're better off just buying the .25mm OS pistons so you dont hafta worry about the A and B size pistons. due to imperfect block manufacturing honda used two sizes of pistons to account for this. if you look on your block there should be an A or B next to each cylinder, which denotes which piston was used. therefore if you get the OS pistons you just hone it out and throw ur OS pistons in and you're done.

Re: type s pistions and rods

you might get lucky and them be all A size, look before you make any rash decisions, if so then just get it honed for standard bore and the standard type s pistons. the b size type s pistons are very hard to come by.
