Default Engine rebuilder/builder in Southern California?

Would love to hear of a reputable rebuilder in my area. It's getting to the point where I can't find a decent 6th gen Civic for sale that isn't riddled with problems, regardless of price point. Seeping head gaskets, poor compression, and so on. I'm thinking about just buying a cheapo EX Sedan with obvious engine problems and using the extra cash to have the motor rebuilt.

I don't want to go the "Japanese Engine" route. I want to know that the ************ has new pistons, rings and bearings and that the clearances have been set up properly. I don't want one of these supposedly rebuilt engines with a guarantee that they'll give you as many fucked up engines that you want to install until you go away and stop bothering them. You know what I mean? I just want an honest engine rebuilder to build a stock d16y8 for me.

Thanks for your input!

I'm wondering the same thing. Looking for reputable engine builders in the Los Angeles area.

Bump for one more try.
It would be nice to find a Syncrotech Transmissions type shop of the engine world.
