Default Places to buy Pre-built honda engines?

I've seen them on the jg engine dynamics website but i was wondering if anyone knows of any other places that sell pre built honda short blocks (I need D16Z6) for use with a turbo of course. Web sites would be great.

anyone else have problems or good stories about JG Engine dynamics. I'm just wondering because their short block look very complete and at a good price.

well for the most part jg does good head work but their blocks from friends experience isnt good i wont point finger but they didnt go well but if u just need head work they are ok...i would go through importbuilders over jg or send it to RS Machine have em do your machine work(send pistons for boring) and have someone with experience(alot) and have them assemble it with you...good luck

well I have a spare short block in which the #3 rod bearing went out in. so the crank is a little scratched and the #3 cylinder wall is slightly scuffed. So I'm basically looking at a good deal to send this out and get the crank and cyl wall repaired and some forged rods and pistons thrown in maybe even get one of those inserts put in around the cylinder walls or resleeve. depending on cost.

The JG seems like a great deal fully built and resleeved for 2200 and you can get the monster 1.76L d16Z6 for 2500. But i seem to be seeing alot of people not liking JG.

Screwed me out of $2500 that's waht is wrong.

I am not the only one. I don't have time to post all the people I know of who he has screwed. We could make another thread and I bet you would get at least 20-30 responses of "Screwage".
Read this
http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=684976

About halfway down 5 or so people jump in saying they were screwed.

I hate posting huge pictures but this may help you see what I am talking about. THis was the 2nd engine I got from them. The first one was so bad, I immediately called back and he said send it back. He agreed to pay for shipping. I didn't have a Digi Cam at the time but wish I did. The sleeve scratches were so deep, it would have burnt oil through its whole life. It also had cracks between the sleeves.

Here are some pictures of the second one. After getting this one, they could NOT Be reached no matter how hard I tried.

Cracked Sleeve;

Sleeve Scratch: This is only 1 of them. All cylinders had a massive scratch(es) in them. Guess they don't know how to use their machines.

I also had the engine checked out by a machine shop. All tolerances were WAY out of whack. Each cylnder had a different deck height. As great as 15 thousandths!!! Another point was the engine couldn't be turned over a full 360 degrees. It would hit. Come to find out they didn't notch the block for the eagle rods. This in turn ruined 1 of the pistons. I could go on but there is no point. They are a company that got big because they DID quality work. Now they are a bunch of scammers who need to be put in Jail and A$$ raped.

You wanted experience so you got it.

We do:
1. Sleeved Blocks
2. Built blocks
3. Heads
4. Full complete block and head setups w/ timing belt and head gasket all installed.
5. Complete CRATE motors with headers, intake manifold, etc.
6. Also turbo setups to compliment the race engine you buy from us.
7. We also design to any race engine to your specs. Talk with you on the type of abuse you will put your motor through and pick the right parts for that.
8. We also work with Average racers to Race shops that want fully done motors so all they have to do is install it in their shop.

We have a customer coming out on 2004 for Sport FWD/Pro-AM that we helped design the complete setup from the ground up.
from race block to even the wiring on the engine management system.

Wil


and on top of that. We are total D-Series fans also.. well at least I am.
