    Hi, new to this forum and Hondas. I just got a '92 Civic EX givin to me buy one of my customers. I told him the motor was going, but he did not listen. The D16Z6 now has a large hole in the block. I have not removed it yet, but I am confident that I just need a short block. This must be a decent motor since it will run, the former owner just thought it was down on power and was burning oil, what a moron? Anyway anyone have a good rebuildable short block that will work for a stock daily driver? I have heard other blocks will work, but I am not building a high compression hot rod and do not want to buy high octane gas.

    Trying to keep it cheap, Thanks

    How much do you want for either? Will both work on my head and if so which one is cheaper. Sorry, trying to do this on a tight budget.

    Thanks

    Where are located? I have a perfectly fine D15B7 you can have for free if you pick it up. Motor is in Boston area.
