Change the pistons- while you got the head off- while doing that, do the whole engine- are you just trying to save money? Make sure the tops of the pistons are indented and will clear the valves- when you get the head back on, and the timing belt on, turn the engine by hand, slowly- there should be no interference-

Better to find a VTEC engine. Not only is the block different, but the notched high compression pistons, hardened crankshaft, & cam too.
