i might be getting a d15b2 block and need to know what sive overbores honda makes so i can get the block bored to the right size.

.0020, .0030, .0040 are the sizes ive seen. as far as p29's/pg6b's/pm7's go you might wanna double check compression height between the the 1.6 pistons and the 1.5 pistons. from my understading the only way too make this work is to use the vx crank and rods but the pistons will stick out the block some. nothing a good thick headgasket cant help though. and p29's on stock b2 rods will have the pistons sitting fairly low in the cylinder.

ive been wanting to do the same for some time now.........but i no longer own my old carb stuff......but then again i beleive dual 48's would drown my set up anyways. ive got a few non vtec heads but im sure shipping out that way would suck ***.
