Default WTB Rods and Any 1.8 Oversized Pistons

Looking for rods and pistons at a reasonable price. My 1.6L SC engine overheated and now has tons of blow-by. So much so that my oil fill cap literally hovers above the fill hole when unscrewed, bought a 2001 engine, and needless to say that the sleeves needed an overbore.
I have been anticipating this upgrade from a 1.6 to a 1.8 for a while now and have been upgrading the 1.6 with all the same upgrades that a 1.8 can use (MS3x, ATI damper, sequential injection, LS2 coils, EV 14 Injectors) in the meantime. My power goals are basically the limit of torque before I need to upgrade the transmission away from a Miata.
Items I still need:
Overbore Pistons to .020 (83.5mm) (Wiseco, Supertech, w/e) the machinist is waiting for me to let him know what size to over-size the bore.
Forged Rods
Torsen LSD
ARP Headbolts
Clutch & Flywheel
Most places in So-cal are cool with me for local pick up.

I've got a set of OEM rods I pulled out of a 1.8L VVT engine.

I have some 11:1 Supertech 83.5 pistons. They have a little bit of detonation marks on the top, but still usable and cheap. $100 plus shipping.

If interested, send me a PM with your phone number and I'll send you some pictures.
