so my b18b has 157,000 miles on it. I have done a lot of reading all over this site for the past couple of days, and decided that id rather go turbo then vtec. if i port and polish the head, and sleeve the block(is there a better alternative?) and then replace the valve train, cams, pistons, seals, would it be making it "new"? i guess im just afraid of putting all this money into an old motor, and seeing it crash and burn...money wise, maybe like 2-4k over time. Id also like to say thanks to pissedoffsol (sp?) for that extreme amount of effort and time he took to make that whole reference section...mad props haha. thanks a lot guys.
