Engine build help

I km looking to completley rebuild a b18 to be able to handle boost and u already have a gsr swap in my civic would it be easier to pull my engine and rebuild that or too just find a whole new engine rebuild that with better internals so that my car can remain a daily driver plus I am unsure with what companies offer well made parts ao that it doesnt leave me stranded.

Shop around, do research. It's all about your budget. If you got the money to get another block i would. If not take it to a shop

Id love to take it too a shop but thats not the fun of a build. Whwn it comes to turboing maybe then because we don't have the experience for that. And I know either way its going to expensive and the prides juat not quit there for me. I have a love for Honda's but not the experience on building motors.

What I am saying is you do not have to take you car down there to have them build it for you. You can simply call those two shops to gather information on the type of build you would like to do. By calling these guys they can give you an idea of exactly what you need, the parts you should run and even order parts if you need it. They also can give you locations to machine shops etc.

Not to mention having a shop build your block properly doesn't take the fun out of any build. Trust me, there is a lot more to a proper built car than just the block. There is also a ton more stuff you can work on yourself, building your own block and having a crap ton of issues down the road is no fun and will lead to a for sale thread a few months later like most the guys on this site.

I didn't miss the part he mentioned this is his daily driver, in fact he said he has a b18 and is wondering if he should build that block or pull the GSR in his car to build.

All I am saying is if he is planning on building either block to use in his daily driver, he should really make sure either one is built correctly if he intends on driving the car everyday with a built turbocharged setup.

If it was my setup, I would build the GSR..
