    Sorry if this is in the wrong section its been a bit lol, but Im trying to find a reputable place to buy a sohc zc vtec obd2, I normally buy from Hmotors, but they don't have any and they seem to be very few and far between . I prefer to stay in the states, that way if something does go wrong it will be easier to deal with. I cant believe how many shops are selling these jdm engines now, its come a looooong way since the kwanabe days in the 90s lol.

    the problem with the y8 is the age, hard to find a y8 that has under 100k on the motor.

    you can try to find a y8 with low miles in a yard close to you.
    You can sort by distance from your zip.
