IB Spec, or Wiseco


I'd personally go with IB Spec, Jeff is an awesome guy. paying vendor on Hondaswap who has had NOTHING but good things said about him from the people who have bought from him.

for a low budget NA motor, go to Acura and get a set of DA 86-89 integra pistons and rods. the rods should be good up to about 200 wheel HP, and the pistons will bump up the compression, I think about .5
For turbo, it all depends on how much you want to spend and what your goals are. the good ol standbys SRP and the more expensive JE are good brands to go with.
