im looking into buying this ej1 but the dood said the engine was shot he rebuilt the head but says that it needs bottom rebuild he has everything but rods to build it. but i asked what happend to why it had blown he told me he was driving and the oil pump stopped working and then the rod started knocking. someone told me a bearing would be spun before a rod started knocking was wondering what you all thought or what i should do. thanks. how much would you offer on a complete stock ej1 looks good paint wise but has some rust on quarters needs bumper support and bumper cover and the engine problems like i just explained.


appericate it guys.
thanks.

keep looking

apparently the guy told him he needs 2 new rods cuz its got a slight knock? wtf

if your gunna get the car have someone who has been inside a honda motor to go with you and look at it and get bearings put in it somewhere local.. or maybe someone on here would like to go through a step by step procedure explaining how to rebuild a motor for you

or you could alwayse do what i said when u first asked me and get a hanes manual

EFs EGs in decent condition are hard to come by
theyre either riced out or been sitting in someone's yard for years

lol thats how it is here. if you dont find some over priced shell you'll get bodykit spoilerd decal'd out cars its dumb. most of em here are rusted out. or have damage. i look everyday for another posting. so i guess we'll see if i cant find anything soon tho im gonna have to get the other one.

I've seen a couple very clean very fast very bad ass cars come out of Kentucky. Just wait. You will find a deal. If not Search a larger radius and be willing to drive a bit. I know I could always find you a car within a couple hundred miles of me for a decent price. You would have to come get it though. Patience bud.

Shells will go for sub $1000 all day. Then just find a good condition stock motor or rebuild one on a budget put it in and call it a day... for a while.
