    I just moved out here to Naperville, IL from Ohio and I was wondering if anyone new some good shops out here. I need to swap engines in my 2000 Si and I dont have anything out here to do it with. New engines coming in Tuesday and I need it done ASAP. Anyone know the right shop for the job? Thanks

    yea, i kinda did that, but I dont think Ill be needing to swap a B16 into my 10 speed lol. So no bike shops for me. And I do love muscle cars but I dont think theyll be jumping for joy when I roll in with a Civic. Im kinda looking for good and known to be trustworthy Honda shops. I do appreciate the effort though!

    Top Setup in Palatine IL is a fairly good shop from what I've heard. I've had no direct interactions with them but 2 of my good friends have. One more than the other. Mainly got a type-r suspension put on his EG, and a D15B swap. The owner, Charlie, has even been featured on Best Motoring, and Tsuchiya loved his K powered EG hatch. If you want to look up the video (on youtube for sure), it's American Touge 1, 2, and 3 I believe (he's in all 3)

    BTW I'm over by Gary IN.

    I always thought the armpit of America was all of New Jersey.:ph34r: Canton OH, and Denora PA, are close seconds. I have been to a lot of shitty places :).

    Funny you should mention Canton, that is where I bought the car getting no oil to cylinder two (the reason behind this post.)

    theres a shop called ONE6MOTORSPORTS 847-593-9490 in elk grove village il. the owner is a sooper nice guy. they specialize in all things honda. its where ive bought all my b16 swap parts.

    Only problem with that is its not running and no offense but I'd rather be there while its getting done. If you'd be willing to help and I can find a way to get it down there that'd be awesome. Ill have to look into that
  15. pm me maby we can work some thing out i aint doing it for free though i have a lift and all other esentials. You will have to let me know in advance as i do lots of transmission work in the evenings at home and waiting on parts can tie up the lift for a few days at a time.

    you have a lift?? lucky mofo.....
  17. when you work on cars for a living you tend to do lots of side work. A lift is one of the most importand tools that you can have and depending on how you look at it they are not that much hell a decent tool box is 4k

    Well I'm ending up selling it. Bills are piling up, especially for rental cars. Someone offered me 4800 cash for spare engine and all. Pretty much barely breaking even but I'm not going to go into debt just to keep the car. Maybe I'll look for a nice EG hatch.

    you couldnt find anywhere at all to swap engines over??? it should be easy since your puttin a b16 right back in it.. did you get a price quote from anyone?

    Yea, OneSix quoted 575 plus parts which I know isnt bad but as I said bills keep coming u. mostly high because of all the activation fees Im gettin with just moving here. I get paid bi-weekly which blows. And rentals are 150 a week. im not looking for a handout but if anyone could help thats in the area or knows someone whos good and cheap Ill let them take the old engine AND throw them some cash. I just need it done ASAP. You can check out my old posts to see whats up with the old one. If all else fails Ill have to cut the losses and get a different car. I live in Warrenville right off 88. Ive got no tools with me as I always used my dads stocked garage back in Columbus. ANYONE? ANYTHING? Id greatly appreciate it. Id really rather not sell the car especially for a loss. but if need be any takers?
