    ok I bought a 91 civic lx sdn for 80 bucks with a thrown timing belt. so here are my assumtions Please correct me if I'm wrong! that the valves are mush? that it would be cheaper to get a used head than replace valves?
    OK so which heads can I use with no modifications using the stock dual point fuel system intake and exhaust manifold, the valve cover etc from the stock head or possibly if i found a head with cover ..., I'd get a new head gasket, and timing belt. can i do this cheap? I know not very exciting but when you need advice come to the experts right? :) I'm keeping my eye out for motors and heads, timing belts gaskets etc that i need for this job.

    get me a list of all the parts you need, and email it to chrislathan@hotmail.com

    i have all the parts you need, most likely, in fact, i can sell you a complete motor and tranny for probably 200 plus shipping

    ok well i bought a "good running" complete 90 civic lx 5 speed engine (D15B2) for $102.50 plus $200 for shipping so guess problem solved. and it was the cheapest sure thing I found. without knowing whether my existing bottom end is ok.

    $200 shipping for an engine?? You could have just went to a local salvage yard and got one for $300 with a warranty. To answer your question though. Any SOHC head would have worked, and for $300 you could have put on a VTEC head.

    A little patience and respect will get you more helpful answers. For the $300 you spent you could have done many things and bgot more power out of the deal. Next time try to wait more than one day for responses. And here's a good D series BBS, D series. Go there and read, there's a lot of good info, but no one will answer a question that you can search for the answer
