    I got a 95 civic with a GSR swap in it. It was burning oil like a mofo before I completly seased the motor up from having no oil in it I presume. It always had blow through after about 5 grand and was burning oil. Anyway, I have had my head rebuilt just recently, should I just get a remanufactured block and pistons? What companies actually hold up their warranty's with remanufactured long blocks? I kinda want to put high compression pistons in it, jump it up to 11.1. Maybe a turbo is in line. What are the possibilities here to pump up the horsepower a bit while I do this.

    lol don't tell him that because he'll go throw in 8.5:1 pistons, throw on a t25 and wonder why it's still slower than a stock GSR motor lol

    Just to clarify a little on what eg is saying... If you plan to go turbo, stay with the stock compression or slightly lower compression for a daily driver. If you plan to do a pretty hefty build, 8.5:1 - 9:1 is around where you wanna be, IMO.

    Just remember, the lower compression you go, you'll have to make up the loss in power with boost.

    Referb Question

    So do you guys know of any really good referb long block manufacturers? I really would like to see someone that is going to actually honor warranties like they are suppose to.

    I dont think you are going to get a warranty on anything you change or modify in any way. Especially if you boost a motor that comes stock na.
