So heres a link to my car and motor: http://hondaswap.com/threads/civic-2000-with-jdm-swap.529062/ Now I was told this motor was built however we haven't opened up so moving forward I'm going to treat it as an unbuilt motor til I know otherwise. With that being said I have been doing some research on how much it would cost to properly built my motor to handle 25lbs of boost making somewhere between 450whp - 550whp or even maybe somewhere in the 600s depending. I have found anywhere between $2000 - $3000 However I called CFT (central florida turbo) and asked them how much they would charge to build it if we find out its got stock internals they told me for my numbers $2500 built and installed, labor and all. My question is this a realistic number to budget for? What are you experiences with having your motors built? And yes I am building for boost. No offense to anyone but I would never put $10k in a motor for it to remain N/A. But thats just me. anyways lmk what you think and what I should expect. as far as parts are concerned I am thinking forged eagle rods, forged pistons (haven't decided on a brand yet, could use a good recommendation) arp bolts, skunk2 2s cams, upgrade the entire valvetrain, PnP the head, skunk2 im, skunk2 70mm tb. possibly thinking about an over bore not sure how much and I am playing with the possibility of getting the block sleeved as well. which is around $1000 from what I could find. anything I'm missing from my list? would love some good quality suggestions. I want to build my motor right and to last the first time, would like to enjoy it for the next 5 years or more if possible.
