Default B18A Block build

I was wondering what are some internals that should be built on my B18A engine inorder for it to be able to handle high power? I was told to get piston rings, pistons, rods, rod bolts I am not sure which brand is good quality and cheap. Is there anything else that should be changed?

p30 with rings? Will they fit a B18A (non-vtec)? Also will I be needing anything else for my engine to handle high power?

What is your definition of "high power"? What are you building it for? Turbo? N/A?

Depending on your power goals, you can spend $1000 or $5000 easily.

If you are going turbo, then don't get the p30 pistons. The P30s are OEM B16 pistons and will raise your compression. Lower compression is better for boost. Get the P30s if you're going N/A.

Im going with cp pistons and eagle rods myself. For my build im also picking up some arp headbolts, oem honda bearings, oem headgasket, oem timing belt, oem water pump. Maybe even possibly sleeving it, but it depends on the budget i have after summer

like turboteg said. exept instead of h beams go wih i beams. they r built for turbo. h beams r for all motor. and if ur looking to push more than about 15 psi, u should also sleeve it. good luck

Wassup man? you wanna make sure the bottom end is gonna be trouble free so suggest you get the block lined bored... and if the crank has over 125k miles get it checked out and balanced.. good luck...

My engine right now has 300,xxx KM and I am going to rebuild it asap. I am planning on pushing like 12 psi max.
Heres what I have come up with:
- cp pistons and eagle rods
- arp headbolts
- new pumps and belts
- Everything else rebuilt if needed
