hey I was just looking for some help I am new to all this it is my first ever swap so I was just wondering off the things I’ve heard/read online I need to swap the k24a4 pistons but not too sure why I was wondering if I was able to just get everything else for the swap and not need to change pistons because I have also read online if I am gonna swap pistons getting OEM tsx pistons would be a better way if I am going for a budget build because I heard you don’t need to change the rods just the pistons any information y’all can give me about the swap and your experiences would be really appreciate

the k24a4 pistons but not too sure why
Just in case you mount a performance VTEC head (K20A, K20A2, K20Z1, K20Z3, K20Z4, ...) on it, as the combination of higher piston height and lower squish height will give you a cold formed headache. If you use just stock head, crank drive and block, there is no need to do so.
