Realistic Summer Plans

So whether or not it's going to be sold is still up in the air.
IF we don't sell it however I've compiled a list of my REALISTIC summer plans for a 17 year old kit.

Transmission
-Replace Leaky Seals (OEM Honda Parts)
-Flush and Fill Fluids (OEM Honda Transmission Fluid)
-Flywheel Balance and Regrind By One6 Motorsports
-Excedy Clutch and Pressure plate
-Replace throwout?
(suggestions welcome)

Bottom End
-Redo the Oil pan Gasket
-Bearings (ACL?)
-Piston Rings (Burns Oil Currently)
-Main Seal (OEM Honda Part)
-Other seals?
-Motor Mounts?
(basically want to stop the leaks and refresh wear points, recomendations for what else to change while i'm in there?)

Top End
-Valve Seals (OEM Honda Parts)
-Valve Seat Cut
-Head Gasket
-Valve cover gasket
-Hondata Intake Manifold gasket

along with the essentials for a timing belt job.
waterpump, belts, etc.

I REALLY need advice, not expecting much power out of this if ANY. I desperately NEED this car to be reliable and im thinking all of those listed parts can make it run smoother and better. Then hopefully use my good old friend the VAFC to get it running top notch.

I think these plans are pretty realistic. Maintenice for 200k. I got chllanged to make this motor run to 500k so it's pretty much at the half way point. I want to get this all done. I'm guessing that's like 2 grand worth of work. I'm pulling and installing the engine and trans myself. Installing everything but the bearings and rings myself also. That will be done by One6 Motorsports i Beleive?

Re: Realistic Summer Plans

i have read mixed opinions about ACL bearings, but more good than bad. i believe blake is running ACL. i would recommend getting the crank balanced as well if its not out of your price range, a smoother running motor will always last longer. replace the cam seal too, but you prolly already knew that. also clean the vtec solenoid and maybe replace the screen if need be. if you're not looking for power gains, then factory motor mounts will be fine. if you want aftermarket, i have heard alot of good things about ESP mounts (thats what i plan on getting). thats all i can think of for now.
