    I asked a local shop how much they would charge to install pistons in my B18. The motor is currently out of my car. So I asked how much for piston and install of motor. The shop said $1500 if I provide all parts. I think this is expensive!:mellow: Does this sound right?:confused:

    To just put them in?!? Just do it yourself. Take a hone up and down each cyclinder , then rent a spring compressor from autozone and pop them in. It's not that hard
