I do not know if you can get Insight engines for that much. I know that you can get boring Civic engines, but the D16y5s that I have found always went for much more.

The machine shop said it would take a day or two, but I was busy talking to the office about getting new clients, and then trying to prepare for three quizzes and a test in four days.

That was Sunday, I called the shop Monday morning, and they said it was ready. They don't inform customers?

The head bolts that I ordered last Wednesday (please allow 2 - 4 business days for shipping) started processing on Monday (please allow 2 - 4 business days for shipping), and allegedly shipped yesterday, but clicking on their link does not give me any shipping information.

I looked it up myself and it has not shipped yet.


It looks like it takes at least two weeks to get nuts and bolts from Coconut Point Honda in Florida.

Edit: This is the only HX engine that I can find:

Over $1,000, plus $200 to ship... and it says it is for an automatic transmission. What difference does that make? Does that mean it does not have lean burn?
