HELP me!!

I just picked up my b16a1 engine from jdmhondaparts.com and the engine that they gave me, well i know there used and all, but like it had aftermarket sparkwires and plugs and stuff. and the front clip of the car was outside and the car had this werid shattered glass decal off the hood. DO you guys think i got some shit ass b16a1 that is already raced out. Fuck i dunno what do you guys think. The shop that was going to do the swap felt the oil inside and said that the oil seemed ok and couldn't noticed any burnt smell inside the engine. But he cna't tell if its jacked up or not cause he's not gonna take the engine apart for me. What do you guys think? Bad B16a1 and i just wasted my fucken money? :blink:

Go through the engine - rings and bearings are cheap when the engine is out of the car. They're easy to do yourself and will pay off in the long run.

Its always fun to run the shit outta your can for a year in japan because they are gaurenteed a new engine every 30000 miles. Bastards <_<
 
So you think my fucken B16 is bad. SHit i dont' have money to go through the pistons and rings. Those fuckers. i spent a gang of moeny. NOw i'm all paranoid about those fucken red spark wires. Shit... But isn't it hard as fuck to blow the engine and ship it over? Do you guys really think my engine isn't relable then?
 
The thing is the place that is doing it said to replace the pistons and rings labor on its own will be 450 bukcs... so shit..
 
Is there any other way of noticing when my engine is bad? like any signs of sounds. I mean what could be usu what is wrong wtih the engine. CUase what i am hearing is that the b16a's are really sturdy. I never hear that there like blowing in like 2 months or soemthing. ya know. So what do you guys think?

holy shit ... just fire the engine in and try it out ... so it had sparkplug wires ... thats not a big deal .... if it was all wired up for N2O id be a bit worried but its JUST wires that doesnt mean the car has been beat to hell just that someone for whatever reason decided the stock wires needed replacing .... calm yourself ... may i suggest decaff for a little while :)

Damn, and here I was thinking that they BOUGHT new engines/cars every 30k or so miles because the cost of ownership became too high. :unsure:

I bought a JDM B16 for parts to use in my LSVTEC, the only thing that was wrong with it when I got it was the knock sensor was hosed. Other than that the motor was in great shape.
