    what i do mean is if anyone tells you they can do it in less then 2-3 hours then do not pick that person cause if your rushing that fast then its going to have mistakes..it takes 45mins just to remove everything ie,wireing,intakemanifold,powersteering pump/bracket,drain the coolent and so forth,then makeing sure everything is wrapped and kept clean,then reinstalling and retiming

    about an hour and a half because you gotta pull the cams on the dohc's. a single cam can be done in less time...assuming you have done it several times and know exactly what needs to be done. if you've never done it before its gonna take several hours because your not gonna know each and every bolt that has to come out. plus your prolly not experianced with setting the timing and removing the old gasket material.

    ^^ hahaha now I know I would never let you touch a motor and your lieing,cause if u installed a blockguard without have the block honed after then u are one dumb shit ..and I will match your couple hundred if u can find astock dohc to change out in a hour

    You only hone the block if you have to beat it in all blocks are diff.You should know that 100 plus builds.you read to much.I have a stock type r going on 1000,00 miles with a block guard in it for over a year daily driver never honed the block i rev to 10000 with toda's still strong.The diff between me and you.You think you know everything i dont.But i know what ive seen and did

    Im a noob i only joined this site to sell my ek and figure out how to build my crx.Not to make friends.Having alot of post doesnt make you cool or faster just means you have no life as i can see from your pics you dont see the sun often or exercise much.I would be afraid to let you build my motor might drop some chicken wing bones out of your pocket in my motor.

    im sorry but this guy is hilarious .

    He is right though, weve taken a head off and put it back on pretty quick..
    head gasket shouldn't take a few hours if you have the know how and right tools..

    jus sayin'
