Re: Engine swap or rebuild D16y7

Depends on how bad it is, how hot it got, how much money you want to spend, what your goals are, your skills and abilities, and your tooling/equipment/space

Did I leave anything out?

Re: Engine swap or rebuild D16y7

Well a rolling chassis is worth about $500 here

Another 97 hatch would run you $1700, but may develop the same issues.

getting the head gasket replaced will cost you around $1200, nearly the same as buying one.

............ or you could try to replace it your self if you can.

-head decked $100
-head gasket $150
-arp head studs $80
-coolant $18
-Honda bond $15
-your time

Re: Engine swap or rebuild D16y7

I’d get a good used engine if you can. Search around. You can get these engines for a few hundred dollars, which is much less than the cost of rebuilding the engine. Plus, you’ll have a lot of extra parts from the old engine.
