Default L15A1 (07-08 Fit) VS. L15B7 (17-18 Civic Si)

Without buying parts Id like to see if I can swap parts between the first USDM L series engine from the 07 Fit and the new Civic Si, bore and stroke are the same but I would like to know if anyone actually knows first hand or knows a way to look it up. Mostly interested in pistons and rods.

Better off just swapping a whole L15B7 into the bay, and call it a wrap

Sure, give the entire swap (Si not EX) to me under $1500 and include a detailed wiring diagram and ECU and don't forget the custom axles that Ill need too.

You won't get the rods and pistons from anyone except a wrecked one anyway. And the value of that engine will be far higher than $1500 even parted out. So, 6 of one, half a dozen of the other...

If you're serious, honestly, you're going to have to invest into finding these parts and giving it a shot. Unfortunately, people on this forum no longer create write-ups and how-tos as they used to due to laziness, and complicity.
Swaps require a cross-reference of all parts, including axles, so it's nothing new to any swap. I consider that par for the course. But at least it has a better likelihood of success over other makes/models attempting a similar endeavor.

Yeah, I might be that guy buying the parts but with off the shelf forged stuff out there and about twice the cost of the oem stuff is still the deal since the research is done.... we will see
