I recently purchased a b18c1 block, 83mm godzilla sleeves and block extension; added height.

I have a b18c1 in my civic right now, so what internals can I reuse, if any?

With some research I have discovered that I can use this type of setup:

LS crank
Eagle long rods
Custom made pistons 83mm
LS bearings

Does this sound right? Please respond.

Thanks in advance. sabot

i'm gonna have to say that you can probably use everything but the rods and pistons, because it seems that all you have changed is the length of the block which effects the rods and the bore size which effects the pistons. otherwise, everything should prbably be good.

Crank clearance

If you are planning on using the oil jets on the GSR block, check the crank clearance versus the jets. I just dropped an LS crank into a GSR block, and it hits the jets/squirters. I'm either going to have to modify the jets somehow, or just take them out, and put a short bolt in their place.

You'll definitely have to get rods and pistons to match your stroke and deck height.

Thanks for the information especially sulsa....I'm going to take it over to DPR and see what they say about it; unfortunately, i don't have an engine builder. I came across this block by chance and got if for a good price from someone trying to get rid of it. It seems that i've bit off more than i can chew for right now instead of just having my motor resleeved with new internals.

Thanks again.

You won't know til you throw the crank in there and the rods and measure them, a whole lot of math comes into play calculating clearances and I'd just replace everything I could while the block was apart with forged internals and ALL NEW BEARINGS.
