Hello,

Are you just replacing the pistons with stock ones? Are you needing oversized pistons for any reason?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


I do not need over sized pistons.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


is forced induction good for the car? I also need the specs please

Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 1 year ago.
Forced induction is a turbo or supercharger. If you have several thousand to invest and are looking at pushing the car to the next level this is a good way to do it.

The stock compression is 10:5:1

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


PLEASE CAN I USE OVERSIZED PISTON AND RINGS? WHAT IS THE EFFECT? WHICH DO YOU RECOMMEND?

Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 1 year ago.

2. 13010-RNA-A00 PISTON SET (STD)

 

This is also the same one from earlier. I just went through the time to look it up for you

 

The only time you will use oversized rings is if your engine sleeves have damage and need to be bored out in order to clear up the damage. You would go up one size if the walls are in need of boring. The first upsize is .020 so this will only be required if the walls are damaged to the point of needing boring using a machine bore..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Thanks. my mechanic is suggesting that I replace only the rings and leave the pistons. cos the car is emitting white smoke though just a little. my catalytic converter is bad. is that the cause? or the rings? please

Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 1 year ago.
I would suspect the rings are the only thing that would need to be replaced. I would have the cylinders inspected when you tear it down. Unless you notice extensive damage to a piston or cylinder wall there is no reason to replace them. The rings will actually cause the catalytic convertor to fail because of the excessive oil smoke that runs through the exhaust system. Replacing the rings will correct all of the problems.


Thanks again!
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I agree with you 100%. lastly, please give me the part number for the rings to replace as well as part number for the fuel guage sender. ALSO GIVE ME PART NUMBER FOR 020 RINGS FOR SAME CAR.

Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 1 year ago.
Here is the piston ring set you will want- http://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuine/honda~ring~set~piston~13011-RNA-A02.html

13011-RNA-A02 is the part number for the rings.

 

 

13021-RNA-A02 is the 0.25 over rings which is the actual size they make 1 up.

 

The fuel sender is Part#: 17047SNAA30
