you gotcha...they run about 2200 complete on Hondamotorsonline.com and a junkyard would run about 1k just for the engine alone.

Jayman,

Where's the thread that explains what happened to your engine. Did you post a thread with the story? I'm interested in hearing what happened. Thanks.

I didnt make a thread on what happened...basically I was experiencing some knocking sound in my engine. My first suspect was a problem in valvetrain area,FPR, or shot bearing/piston problem.

I checked the simpliest problem areas first but they had no effect...I was hoping it wasnt my last suspect but it was. I was experiencing piston-slap in the block. So I knew it was dead and back to square-one for me. I drove it around the block and half-way through, it siezed on me. So I pushed my baby back home and that was it...THE END:confused:

So it really bugged me that my car was dead, but i saw it as another way to change things up a bit, ya know. So now my plans are to put a ls or gs-r engine meanwhile, and turbo my existing engine w/ a b20 block.

Im not growin out of the import enthusiast thing, but I really want to go for a bike right now...maybe a BMX or Huffy.

...J/K:D I want to shoot for a ducati supersport or a CBR. Well thats my story, take care

Your son bought a B18b motor for an average price then depending on condition and mileage...
