    ya, so I got an estimate on my h23 build. They want $4300 for the following:

    -Pistons
    -rings
    -gaskets
    -bearings
    -bore/hone/balance
    -"race" valve job / "basic"port and polish
    -reground camshafts
    -springs

    Isn't that ridiculously overpriced?

    -Pistons 500
    -rings- included
    -gaskets- 250
    -bearings- 120
    -bore/hone/balance - 300
    -"race" valve job / "basic"port and polish 500
    -reground camshafts 500??
    -springs 300


    =2470 + 1500 labor (my guess for that kinda work)
    = sounds about right to me

    do it yourself

    Sounds like that's the route for me at this point.

    How much of an overbore do you reccomend on a h23a1?

    if you are going with forged pistons, you have to sleeve.
