Conrods are pretty much the same, but pistons are a bit different in regard to valve reliefs. But it doesn't mean they can't be used. You could easily get au style pistons anyway to suit.

Thanks Bossxr8, I was hoping the rods could be used. Hopefully my Engine Builder can find some descent pistons. I don't need much, I'm only aiming for for around 250-300 rwks. Should be fun for a daily driver.

B series rods will fit, you can use B series pistons if you recut the valve reliefs to suit
