Engine Help/Advice

My CEL came on, codes read missfiring cylinders. 2 Cylinders are running at 75 and 115. My mechanic recommended a new motor. I'm new to the Honda scene with my 99 SH and I was wondering if it was possible to just bore out the pistons to solve this problem without replacing the whole block. My second concern is the cost compared to a new block. I am trying to build an N/A, if that helps with the advice. Much appreciated.

I thought about a rebuild, but if I did that, I would want to beef up the internals...I am going to start accumulating internal parts soon and hopefully next year do the install. right now I just need the piece of mind that would come with a new motor. Fresno Area, CA
