    So my buddy picked up a fully rebuilt lsvtec from a friend. The guy rebuilt it more then a year ago and never ran it. Instead he left it in his shed without any spark plugs. My buddy took the head and gave me the complete short block which has all new parts and rusty cylinder walls. Is there any way I still could use this block? Cylinders 2 & 3 are the ones with the most damage.

    you can TRY to have that honed... but if it doesn't hone out it will need to be bored.

    Well i oiled it up in motor oil for the night and took some 800 sand paper to the major rust spots. Next im gonna hone it, hopefully i could salvage it. If not i have a spare b18b i picked up a while ago. Not sure of its Condition though.

    i don't advise that. you really need to use a hone to atleast keep it in round. and remember if you can catch it with your fingernail you will certainly catch it with a ring.
