Well i went to a machine shop that my instructor recommended, said they do awesome work. They do a lot of hondas too which is also nice. Here's the prices he quoted me, wanted to see what you guys think. He said this is absolute maximum pricing depending on what needs to be done... Block wash, bore + hone, cut deck (if needed) = $240 crank inspect + polish = #35 valve job, mill, and assemble with supplied parts= $220 balance (if requested) = $275 I plan on using SRP pistons and maybe eagle rods (or tuner toys rods), so i don't think i need the balancing, thought that stuff was mostly for domestics. As for the valve train i'm going to get ITR valves and springs for the intake, and then swap my intake springs to the exhaust side, heard it makes for a nice combination. I'm keeping the stock cams beacuse the gen 2 are pretty aggressive and i don't feel like getting type r cams. thoughts?
