Was just wondering where i can find a rebuild kit for a b17 i havnt seen anything out there i no i could buy all b16 stuff and put that in like crank rods ect... But pretty much pointless because im not gonna spend that kinda money on this motor all i really need i guess is rings bearings all around including the bottom end, and new lifters valves ect... every thing to rebuild the head can any one help me out here or are these parts just not possible to buy any more and mabey i gota just get them custom made i dono i guess if so let me know of someone that would do it if you know of any one thanx.

Ebay usually has rebuild kits, NPR kits are a good one to go with. Make sure to get a graphite headgasket when you do the rebuild, and get ARP studs if you can afford them.

B16
---bore is 81mm
---stroke is 77.4mm


B17
---bore is 81mm
---stroke is 81.1mm

Same bore and rings, but different pistons and rods. rebuild usually replaces pistons and rods.

b17=b16 only if you plan to do rings, which is foolish , but is possible, though you still would be running old rods, which isnt so good. stress of thousands of heating and cooling cycles cause fatigue in the metal

B17 pistons are shorter, hence having a lower compression even with the increased stroke. Some turbo B16 motors are used with b17 pistons for this reason, OEM parts and yields better boost ability
