Well guys, my engine is finished again. I will be needing a short block with internals. Anybody know where I can get one for cheap. My ride is at Honda right now. I don't really know what to do. All I know is that they are not going to be covering it under Honda Care at all. I am probably going to be getting out of this car and getting into something else. Prolly AMG or something. Does anyone want to buy my car, cause as of right now I will be selling it. I am not going to part it out. I just want to sell it as is. Please help me out if you can with some info on where to get a short block used but still in good condition.

Damn that sux! You always have the option of your insurance to pay to fix it, but its probably better if you pay for it if you have the money.

I did not mis-shift the car. The back bank of 3 cylinders the ones closest to the firewall failed. The dealer says that the pistons overheated and seized for a second. They also found a sludge inside that contained metal shavings. They then sent the inspector out and he of course did not approve of coverage. So I am being denied by Honda Care to fix my ride. I am going to need a new bottom end and catalytic converter.

I remember in your video were you raced the RSX type s saying you have 3 inch pipes coming down from each cyclinder....does that have anything to do with it? Is that why you need to [email protected]?!?!?! Let us know man. Damn, if I wasnt thinking of using my block, I would of sold it or traded it to you. Good luck.

How did the rear bank of cylinders overheat? And why won't they cover it under warranty? Your mods wouldn’t justify it not being covered under warranty :confused: .

I was referring to his exhaust. The 3" pipe from each cylinder statement.
