if it can be upgraded or replaced with a better part then replace it and upgrade it. get a better crankshaft, get better pistons get better rods, bearings, seals, rings, cams, gears, fuel system, upgrade everything and by the time ur done u will have a race car. good luck!

You may not even need a rebuild.
Modern motors are reliable up to 150,000.
That's what engineers say(quoting Popular Mechanics magazine).

Plus, you have a Honda, not an Audi.

Look into the leak, see what's going on. It's probably a seal or a gasket, NOT needing a full blown rebuild.
