for the lazy people who wont click th link:


Curiosity question guys...
It is my understanding that the Honda b16 rod is identical to the bp rod with the exception of a wider big end, and that many miata enthusiast have used those rods by simply milling the big end to match the miata dimension.

Is this true?

If it is... One of my distributors can get me a very good deal on the Honda H beam rods made by Eagle, and I have a machinist who could mill the big end to spec.

What this amounts to is the possibility to have a ready made set of Eagle H beam rods for $300 or less.

Let me know your thoughts. - Paramour208 from miata.net

I think racingmazda does something like that. they use eagle rods meant for a honda and then mill them down for the BP

Motorworx took a 1600cc B6T from the Mazda Familia 4WD rally car to use as a base. The bores have been enlarged 4.5mm upping the displacement to 1732cc. Pistons are Arias forgings for the Toyota 4A-GZ.
