    I have a 2000 civic si that is burning a lot of oil. I want to ask you guys if i should rebuild my motor with ctr pistons or should i just sell yhe motor as is and put the proceeds toward a jdm b16 or b18 motor. I've done the math and to buy the jdm motor will probably cost me about 500 - 600 more than the rebuild, but the rebuild price can never be sure until the motor is pulled down.:confused:

    If its not knocking then ya I would go with the rebuild with some CTR pistons and new rings. Take the extra 600 bucks and buy yourself some Type r cams.
