    JE High Compression Pistons
    20mm Bore
    Port & Polished Head
    Titanium Twin Springs & Retainers
    Valves
    JG Cam
    Dist With MSD Cap
    ZC Half Shaft
    Focuz Intake Manifold

    it seems about right, but you can get a complete GSR swap for roughly that price, why not dohc?? If you an sohc guy that is cool, just don't know what you want to do with your ride thats all.

    oh my bad it's a d16a6, i dunno what the 20mm bore is all about either...he has like $5400 in receipts & the engine should be good for 12s easy, possibly 11s...i'd prefer to get a dohc engine but my buddy is offering this to me...i'd prolly get an Si tranny & some beefy axels, i don't know what size injectors i'd need, i found a ecu for it already...so does it sound good or no? oh ya 0 miles on the engine too...

    what kind of car is it going into?

    it's probably a .020" overbore

    you aren't getting a trannY??
    you wont go as fast as you want to in a single cam w/out some form of boost/juice.

    it'll be going into a 90 std hatch and oh ok and no tranny with the deal, i can pick up a si tranny from my buddy for it though, also this engine is supposed to produce 270 hp....thats what the guy says but you never know...i figure it should be in the 12s atleast which is damn quick for a sohc non vtec honda engine with no power adder....

    270 whp?? never.

    270 at the crank??
    that'd be like 230 at the wheels if you figure a 15% drivetrain loss.

    i just dont think that will make that much hp

    Hahahha ,word, it's not even worth running 100+ octane.

    3000 can get you a B16A SiR II with some bolt ons. It's a nice build, with the exception of the 20mm bore, he might have overdone it there. :)

    Driving very high compression motors for a daily driver sucks, you have to buy nasty octane gas that costs like 4-5bucks a gallon, and 270, well you get the point :lol:

    I would never buy a built engine that was used for some miles. The only way I would buy that engine is if it was from a shop, had some kind of warranty and you can really trust whom ever built the engine.
    I would go b series.
