ok my budget is 1000 - 1200 dollars for my bottom end. my car has been taken off of insurance so theres no timelimit on how long i can spend working on the car. i have a b16 with the head fully aftermarket. the bottom end is stock. so i want to work on bottom end.

heres the list of what i am going to need to buy:

ctr oil pump
b16 gasket kit
pistons ( im looking at nippons because people say they are good, but if you have huge power they arent that great. they look like a decent option. the ctr replica would be the ones i would get)
water pump
rod bearings
main bearings

i know i will have plenty of money left over so i am considering more options.

rods? (i might see how much a shop would charge to shotpeen my rods)

get 1mm oversized pistons and get a machine shop to bore it out? (would there be a benefit in that because there will be a better fit than if i got normal sized pistons and honed it because there would be more clearances?)

also the nippon pistons come with king bearings. honestly i have been looking for king bearing reviews but have come up empty handed.

let me know if this is going in the right direction/ if there is anything that i should consider with money that is left over from the 1000-1200 dollar budget.
