I'm rebuilding a B6ZE (mx5 1.6) with oversized pistons, 10.7:1 compression, factory conecting rods, and new bearings.

The block has already been machined, so piston order is set.

Can I mix the order of the connecting rods with ballancing in mind?

Hello Val

yes you can move the rods around to suit but they should all be pretty close after balancing then without pistons on first
