Default stroking a 1.5 Civic LX

i have a question about stroking a Civic LX. if i am going to stroking a 1.5L to 1.6L will i need the crankshaft too or just the rods because i am about to go to the junk yard on saturday and i want to know what else i should get with it because i am looking to go naturally aspirated with a 10:1 Compression ratio or higher

i would go with the 1.6l sohc vtec pistons and roads and if you could get the crank to, you will probably have to widin the cylinder walls to fit the bigger pistons

i only thought of this earlier today. and i aint had any time to look up any thing and i aint really trying to take the whole engine out of the car and and bore the block or any thing like that. i aint at that skill level yet. i really don't have alot of experience in tuning cars i have some not alot. so how long would it take for me to swap out the pistons and rods. is it a good idea to swap them the same day that i am doing to port and polish.

About how much horse power i should gain with these mods and the 10:1 compression ratio

You're going to have to pull the engine to get the crank and everything out. No?

i think i can get the pistons & rods out with out removing the crankshaft because I can pull them through the top of the block. but i don't think it is a must to remove the the crank. but if it is i can remove the torque convertor from the flexplate and take out the crank. if it is not possible to do that please tell me now so i don't get my hopes up.

will you have to replace the crank to stroke it? uh...yeah. stroking means taking enlongated rods to make the stroke longer. that means that the crank has to be modified to accomidate for the rods.

oh yeah...im not sure of this for sure...but i think Crower makes a stroker kit for the b7
