NEEDED:: trustworthy shop. Engine assembly and tune by JULY


Recommended Posts

Morning to all.

I'm looking to you honda challenege guys for guidance. My track car motor needs freshening up. The only part of my car I have never ventured to touch was the bottom end. I can take it apart yes, but i don't know if i'm capable of putting it back together CORRECTLY the first time and i don't have too much time to waste before my next event JULY 23rd in nashville.


it is a C5 with Toda C's / weisco 12:1/eagle rods/ and some nice bolt ons. made 206/136 whp back in 03'. motor was built and tuned by stephen sakai of SGT.


the car is primarily HDPE and time attack, and eventually, once i make it up the DE ladder, who knows what class i will fit into.


it was time for a new head gasket, oil pump, valve seals etc. just some preventative maintenance. I didn't plan on doing rings, but after removing the head i decided it needed to be done. the compression was good but the oil control rings are not working efficiently.


I live in cincinnati and i'm willing to drop off the motor a couple hours away. My budget isn't huge and i would really prefer to do this myself, but i don't have the tools i need or anyone else to show me the ropes.


is there anyone in the tristate willing to either come down and give me a hand, or point me in the direction of a trustworthy place to assemble this motor?

honestly, there arent any places in the tri-state that i would trust. i would look into taking it to kevin helms at hondaworks, jim justice of justice race engines. both guys do excellent honda work. i have had expreience with both shops with friends and competitor engines all parties ave been happy with their work.
