I will start going through my B20 this week and need to get a complete gasket set. Any suggestions as to where to get it? Brand?
Also as I recall the wrist pins on the Honda are floating right? They arn't pressed in?

They are pressed into the rod not pistons and I recommend you go with Honda gaskets. Don't buy cheap gaskets, honda makes the best for our engines. I would get the wrist pin removed professionally to not damage the pistons, and when installing them, Bart had a good trick.

Heat the rod up with a torch, not glowing red, just hot enough for the metal to expand. At the same time, put the wrist pin in the freezer and let it shrink. The tolerances will be so different that they will just slide together. Once they cool off/heat up, they will make a press fit.

I must disagree...although OEM gaskets are great.
I blew my HG after only 500 miles on boost.This one was a OEM Honda one that I bought from the dealer.I switched to a cometic MLS and haven't had one problem.
I'm not trying to start anything just offer another viable alternative.
IMO Cometic FTW!
