rebuild question: block machining

So I snapped a rod a few months ago and Im just now getting started on the rebuild..

I've found some of the parts I need on majestic honda (Majestic Honda - The Internet's #1 Honda Automotive Parts Store) and they seemed extremely cheap.. (has anyone ordered parts from them before??)

anyways after looking into the block its obvious Im going to have to get it machined.. does anyone have any kind of price estimate for that? also would it be about the same price to get the cylinders bored to .25?

thanks!!

Re: rebuild question: block machining

good luck finding someone that will machine that FMR. id imagine it would cost a little more the more material you take off

Re: rebuild question: block machining

bring it to a shop that specializes in porsche's; they used a very similar, if not almost identical FRM material in some of their blocks too so they know how to correctly machine them.

Leave it to Neck to bring in the germans. But, all in all you are correct in that the Porsche's used FRM sleeved blocks. That and their cars ran on beer.

Re: rebuild question: block machining

well thats good to know that majestic honda is legit. They definitely have the cheapest prices I've seen.

Well would it be cheaper to get a new sleeve for that one cylinder?

Is that material only in the sleeve? because the material between the crankshaft and the cylinder also got damaged.

Also any suggestions on other parts to replace during a rebuild would be appreciated.

i actually drove a carrera two nights ago @ a parking job.... it honestly wasn't all that. i liked the interior of the fit that i drove previous to the carrera better than it. but i've alwaysssss loved fit's for some odd reason.

snapping a rod usually does ALOTTTTAAAA damage. you might be better off (aka cheaper) buying a new/diff block.

Re: rebuild question: block machining

Thats what i was initially going to do, but for some reason h22s are scarce around here and usually over $1000. Ive called numerous shops/salvage yards and searched craigslist for a long time.

so unless machining the block cost around $800 (which I have no idea because the thread switched from my question about machining prices to porches somehow lol), then I think it would definetly be cheaper to rebuild.
