As many of you don't know, a few weeks ago I went out of town to visit a dying relative in Costa Rica. He ended up dying late on that Sunday. When I left, a friend of mine needed a car to borrow for a while, he was in the process of buying his own. I lent him my Ex. When I got back, deeply depressed and scared, b/c my uncle that died, died of the same cancer I have, I found my civic in the driveway with oil EVERYWHERE. Turns out, he didn't get the oil change I told him it needed, and apparently he rev'd it too high, and completely shattered the #4 rod. It blew a nice hole in both the block, mains, and oil pan. He tried, he gave me $300, which I'm sure most of you know is nowhere near enough. I went through and yanked the motor out and overhauled it with higher compression forged pistons, oversized by .02" I had to machine most of the entire bottom end, shout-out to CITY motors, and after replacing the belts, water pump, gaskets, seals, etc... It's ready to be put back in. Hopefully I can get it in sometime this week, Though the schedule is very busy. I'll update with Pics when the motor is in. Just very excited and decided to post.
