    This might not be the right forum but since I have an integra i always post here. I recently found out I had a blown head gasket. I looked around and the best price I could find was $831.25 to pull the head, mill it down, the gasket kit, and to put it all back together. What do you guys think? I was going to do it myself but I figured if I did it wrong I am out of a daily driver for even longer. So post back with your thoughts. THANKS:D

    Dont make this so complicated. if you have any mechanical ability and a honda manual why not do it yourself? If you have everything, it would take you no more than a few hours. seriously , its not hard. Plus you get the pride and experience of doing it.

    Trust me I would of liked to do it or at least try it myself but my dad didnt want me to do it. I was going to go out and buy a torque wrench and do it myself but my dad wanted the warranty. I hate having other people work on my car because I dont know what all has been done. If I tear it apart I know exactly whats going on. Anyway, after I get out of school I will be building motors all the time. My time is comming.

    if you buy a torque wrench dont buy a cheap one as it will be wrong. and they are way easy if you want i can send you the directions

    NO, now thats funny!!!


    just messin with yea. theres more to building motors then just slappin some pistons in a block, throwing a head on and callin it good.

    Best advice would be to pay attention and learn everything you can. Best experience, is your OWN experience. Good luck with the builds:)

    They were probably like, "this guys gonna take our cars out and reck them or drive them off a lift",. Dont get me wrong what they did is fucked up so fuck them and now you probably know more then some honda techs. Street knowledge is the shit. I bet you though, they know how to fix it to factory, you know how to make it work.
