Holy geez...man, that was freaky the guy had to go through all that. I know that some will say this is just "one bad experince" and that they have built many good engines. But the bodyshop that fixed my car wrong after a rear-end accident was given 4 chances to fix it, after which it was to court to get the money to fix it right. So I can relate. Thanks for the 411. After reading that, I don't think it's worth the risk, even if they normally built good engines. That orderal reminds me of what I had to go through with the body shop. With so many capible people out there, why go to someone who was caught red-handed cutting corners, you know? It seems better to go elsewhere, (or do it yourself if you know how, which I'd have to learn )

IMO alot of companies are spending too much time and money on advertising and not enough on quaility control and a good product. Examples are APC, Ractive etc. It is soo sad that it is this way though

personnaly i think doing an ls/vtec is better. thats what im doing right now. im using a gsr head and an ls block. what im going to do is get JE pistons and eagle rods with apr bolts. im thinking the crank will be ok. whoever said that this motor will rev only to 7200rpms is a dumbass. it will rev to 8000rpms easily. if u start revving it past 8thou and driving it hard evryday then ur motor will blow. thats what motor do. anyway just yesterday i decided to build it so i can turbo charge it as soon as i get it running.(im done with the head) so as soon as im done ill break it in and take it to the track and tell you guys the time. eckoman_pdx this was my suggestion, if u are going to change most of the internals anyway, go ls/vtec. but dont torture the engine. then it will last. do it only when u need to hit me up for more info i got plenty cuz i already started this project. im planing to drop this motor into a hatch. so if anyone knows someone with a good deal on a hatch let me know (im looking for a 92 to 2000 hatch, 92 to 95 i want it to be an si)

downpipe? is it turbo? b/c a turbo gsr should be deep into the 13's.

he ran on 17 inch kuhmos(712's) z rated. he had nothing in the trunk (no spare, etc) no back seat. when i said downpipe i meant no catalyc converter. by the way the mugen ecu helps a lot. the redline is at 9800rms. of corse im not stupid enough to run it that high. anyway he runs it to like 8500rpms. he always stays in vtec range after 1st. o yeah like 3 days before he went to the track i changed his clutch too.


to get back on subject i found a shop that will bore my engine for 150 bucks. i dont know how much should i bore it down. the stock swize of the cylinder is like 81mm. i want to bore it down like to 83mm, then buy some pistons for this size. eckoman_pdx i know where you can get a gsr head for like 400 bucks.

Sorry I've been busy the past week and haven't had a chance to answer questions, although it seems my asistance was not needed.
