    Hey guys,
    Just wondering if anyone can poiint me in the right direction with this. I've been having trouble finding any good d-series engines around here and I'm considering rebuilding the B2 for shits n giggles and because it's cheaper than buying another engine and probably needing to rebuild it anyways.
    Sooo Egay has kits for about $250-$300, but I'm wondering if they're worth it? I.e. I've heard people say that oem honda bearings are far better than any of the ones in most of these rebuild kits.

    Any suggestions are massively appreciated! The snow is here so I need something to do for the next 8 months or so :S

    OEM honda is always the best rebuild kit. I would never trust one of those ebay kits.

    Thanks for your reply! I've been trying to find an oem honda rebuild kit, is there a site you can recommend? Most of these sites are crap or don't have rebuild kits :p

    Thanks again!

    Majestic Honda - The Internet's #1 Honda Automotive Parts Store

    The prices here are really good. very close to what I pay as a honda employee. You may have to order things piece by piece. It will be $$ but worth it. At least I'd spend the $ and go oem for the critical stuff like piston rings, bearings, and main seals.
