800 seems to be what a lot of people pay for parts, if only one piston needs to be replaced. Normally that seems to be the case, but you won't really know until you pull the head, AFAIK.

NAFocused Yes I have been thinking about doing a build. I have read a lot about people doing swaps and after all that I have read I would really like to know how and if any one has done one. One of the main things I would like to know is if anyone has done a head swap to a DOHC with the SPI.

I picked up an 04 LX with 223K miles for 700 and here are the pictures. http://s828.photobucket.com/user/stevemcc0372/library/

The more and more I dig into it the more and more I am thinking I got ripped off. The body has a few minor dings and scratches but is real good. The interior has a few stains and is dirty but no rips, Dash is good, everything is stock.

The issues are under the hood. I have ordered and got a few parts and replaced them and it can pass inspection now. Believe it or not that car will still run 80 mph down the road. The issues are that some one must have ran it off the road cause the radiator is held on with wire, the AC lines flop around in the wind, and there is a lot of missing plastic pieces under the hood and wheel wells.

Does anyone know where to get a engine built like balanced and new pistons or it is not worth it for this car?

I did notice there are a few short blocks on ebay for under 500 but they are stripped. and need everything else added to it.
