You are correct, that is all you need to stroke a B16A to a 1.8 and a B18 to a 2.0 liter. In order to go over that you will have to bore out the block. Why does everyone rip on ESP for being made in China? I thought all ESP products were finished up in the US. I have never had any balancing problems with any ESP products, but then again I'm only talking about rods not cranks. The only problem I have about ESP is the weight of their rods(345grams), their a lot heavier then I thought.blueSI said:no boring just crankshaft, rods, and pistons with any desired compression for 1800. no boring required.
