    Gentlemen,

    Where can I send my head to be ported and polished by a reputable company, for a decent price? Preferably by Honda/Acura specialists, or that deal with Honda/Acura regularly. Before you say "do a search,", I have, and the only place I'd actually trust is Inlinefour.

    I plan on staying all-motor.

    man your in germany. Eveb the cheapest shop will own you on shipping wont it? I had a local do it. It wasnt a shop owner but he was reputable with his work. That would prolly be you best bet. Ask around nearby shops in your area.

    Yeah, I am in Germany, but shipping isn't too bad... as long as its USPS Priority shipping. I'd definitely insure the head. B16A1 heads here are pretty abundant. I'm not really worried about shipping, more about the work that's being done. If the work is good, quality work, I'd pay the shipping for it no problem.

    Most people don't realize that shipping to an APO address (I'm in the army), is the same as shipping to anywhere in the Continental U.S. So just a word of warning to any eBayers: it doesn't cost more to ship to an APO address. Just ship it USPS Priority and insure it.

    So having said that, what's the name of that shop, or do you have any links? ^_^

    So... wait, let me get this straight:

    B16A heads are abundant
    You shipping something wouldn't cost that much...

    2+2... =...

    Hey, man. You wanna help a brotha out on gettin a B16A head or two fairly cheap over here? :D

    I mean, realistically, what could you buy a complete B16A top end (no block or tranny) and ship it for to say.... Dayton, OH...? Just wonderin'...
