main bearing question, plus rods question

Isn't .25mm over going to be better because it's just bigger? Will it fit guaranteed on my EA81? These were parts listed for EA81s anyway.
And aren't the reason why 1600 pistons get higher CR in an EA81 because of the rods... couldn't I use EA81 pistons and use the EA71 rods and get the same thing?
(you guessed it... rebuild time... mwahahahah!)

I don't know about the pistons or the rods, but all EA81 and EA82 1800s use the same piston rings.

I don't know about the 1.6 pistons. I would look in the repair manual and compare the specs on the 1.8 and 1.6 to find out if the rods are longer or the crank has a different stroke.

and if I can just get 1600 rods and not have to worry about the whole kit and kaboodle of the rods and pistons, then hey, I'd be set.
That plus the gasket set for the engine.

Because the similarity of the EA81 and EA82 pistons and rods, it's possible I could just use the EA82 pistons and/or rods, whichever it is that is bigger in size that results in the increase in CR.
