H22a1 Rebuild

Alright, here's the deal. I'm 17, and every check...after all my small lil bills, I have about $100-$150 to spare. I want to start replacing parts on my engine, I want performance...and I know my ludes gonna need it soon anyways because it has 170000 miles on it now. Only thing is, my whole family is into body work, and growing up...and even now, I know almost nothing about engines. But, if you were in my shoes, with that much money...being 17 with no chance at a loan, where would you start? What should I buy, in order to get my baby running like new again. What would you buy? In order if it helps...

honestly, i wont be able to buy anything anytime soon, if you want to rebuild your motor, and you claim you cant do it yourself, its going to cost you a pretty penny ... i would save, dont run your car hard, just save ... then consider your options ...

I would get a part time job first, balancing school and a job is very admirable & noble for a 17 year old.

I worked my ass off at 15 and bought a brand new car at age 17...i still have it too...my trusty Civic of course, my parents helped me with new car insurance

With the money saved up, you're not too far from an engine rebuild kit. Rebuild kits normally will cost you around $350-500 dollars. So all in all, for a mechanic to do the labor, it should run you a shade around $1000. total.

Let me tell you this though, you can learn anything from a book. Pick up a general book on motors, engines, etc. Download the factory repair manual which is in my sig(4th gen). Search our site for questions, if you've got the motivation, the next step is desire.
