    depends what your doing with the car and what your budget is...weve already established you know little to nothing about hondas...so i would just leave it stock

    ok but do they just put the parts in,or do they know exactly what needs to happen ,,,theres a differance bewteen building a motor,and building a motor that will run,and building a reliable motor,
    you cant just throw parts at something and expect the best outcome possible,you need to research

    So, if they know what the are doing, shouldn't they be able to answer this question for you?

    Cars do not get stolen because of the motor. My car was stolen with the stock D16 in it.
