    If i were you i'd wait untill you had enough money to build the bottom end. It'd be wiser to build it first so you don't have to take the engine apart later on down the road.

    Im getting another motor to build for boost...but as of now i wanna keep my b18 and add a few cheaper parts (even if it means i have to piece it together) that really make a diffirence im really wanna get close as or a lil over 200hp if possible that way my car is not all looks. So i wouldnt be pulling my current motor out later and building the bottom end, hopefully when the time comes to take the current motor out i will have something better to put in. That is my plan but plans dont always work out the way you want them to. I am aware of this!!!!! LOL

    Just leave your engine as it is. No point in wasting money on it if you plan on swapping it with a better engine. The more money you spend on the old engine, the less you have to put towards your new build. Just my opinion.
