Way too much for me. LOL.

I need only a long block, my trans was just rebuilt (Which I FREAKING LOVE BTW!)

I did find a 100% OEM 96 spec R motor for $2,000 local. Or I'm trying to convince @GSRCRXsi to sell me his motor. Really the deciding point will be whether I want to enter into Honda Challenge and the 96 R motor would make for a good H2 car. That or a stock B18C1 so I can drop 100lbs out of the car..

I always said if you're going to blow up your motor, you might as well do it right. I think I did ok here.

My hypothesis.. Valve spring broke at about 9,000 rpm (Junk 2), caused valve to bend, this is where I lost power. Eventually bent valve broke off and bounced around in the cylinder, then puking itself into the intake manifold and sharing it cooties with the other cylinders..

I don't see any cracks in the head, cracks/warping in the cams, nor do I see any valve stems poking out of the block. Try harder. :p


But that is a good first try. Are there any chunks of anything left in the intake manifold?

"A" - if it would have tossed a rod I would have awarded an "A+". The cracked cylinder wall, added to the other carnage makes it a solid "First Time" 95%.

Shell sold today. Only things left are a few valve covers, an oil pan and a rear camber kit. Maybe in 6 years you'll see a thread about building something else. :p
