    what i did was spend 160 bucks for a new crank and bearing kit from my local honda machine shop...acl bearings are just as good as the oem ones.....

    but the oe stuff is great....just giving you some options... brians advice is also great

    i just got my new bottom end today. All forged 4053 crxnk,h-beams rods, pistons,rings,etc. The entire rotating assembly pretty much. all for $1199 to your door. compression is up to 11.3.1.

    If you need pistons hit me up and i might sell you my old ones. Actually they aren't that old and they are PR3's. Thats the only good thing left from my bottom end :mrgreen:
