    Building an engine to sell is just a waste of time and a humungus waste of money. Unless you are a well known trusted builder with alot of good rep. you'll never see anywhere near retail for those parts. If you mean 12 as in 12k, you're dreaming. I could see 3k, if you are really lucky.

    if you're throwing all that money at the thing... why use a b16 block and stock rods? what do you mean by "fully polished and balanced"? do you mean the crank? you'd be much more satisfied if you used a b20 block, or have a b18 bored out to 84mm. the b18 would be cheaper to boot.

    its a decent list of parts , but again why stock rods , would it do 12s in a da , possibly with the right tune and a good driver , parts don't mean your , fast just that you have the part to be fast

    why not use a gsr block and get internals for that. those blocks are amazing, they are very strong and hat the oil squirters that help with the high revs. maybe some sleeves too. you lookin at some serious cash. it might be cheeper to just build it with low compression stuff and run boost

    Judging by the parts list and the question you asked, Im gunna go out on a limb here and say youre new to Hondas. What you need to do is research, your parts list is off to an ok start, but there is a lot more you need to think about.

    As for the stock rods, if you decide to stick with em, at least go have them shot peened for a lil more strength.

    Jump to conclusions much?



    I agree and you need ARP rod bolts as well. Make sure you have 3 times your budget and another car.

    What? Are you talkin about VTEC crossover, or redline, or what? VTEC doesnt crossover close to redline, it crosses over on the high side of halfway through the RPM range. It might seem like its near redline cuz your car will pull like a mother fucker after the crossover until it hits redline.

    I have Eagle H beam in mine and im running boost, with forged pistons to boot.

    I thought Eagle were a better choice with rods then ARP? i mean yeah ARP bolts/studs like the bolts i have IN MY RODS but rods themselves? eh.. i guess

    *EDIT* my bad, i thought you meant Rods themselves. not rod bolts. dur de dur on my part.
