Working fine and working right are two very different things, you may need more than just a hone to the cylinders, you may also need to line bore the block, you didnt mention anything about balencing the rotating assembly either, your new pistons and rods don't weigh the same as the stock ones, and factory balance jobs suck to begin with. Or any valve work, springs that are old and will float at high rpm, any crank grinding that my need to be done, If your order stock size pistons and wind up having to bore the block your going to have to by a different oversize set. balancing the flywheel and clutch, and that means buying a new clutch, which you will have to do once you go turbo anyways.

Do you know what piston to cylinder wall clearance you want? Do you know how much clearance you should have for your rod or main bearings? would you even check them when putting your engine together?

Do it right once and forget about it. If it costs you more to do it right it is worth it.

If you can afford and don't care pay the $2100 I'm not knocking you for that but there are cheaper ways so don't tell me I can't build a engine with everything for 2k cause I can I just buy part at discount rate make some of my own parts and do all the work my self. Look at the Puerto Ricans some of the nastiest budget builds come out of that place.
Somehow I doubt that you can have the motor that Hustler has for $900 dude. Parts alone is more than that even with your angry discount.

Well I figured I would bring up this old thred, I just got a Holset HY35 for free from a guy who's truck broke down. I gave him a ride and he had like 6 of them at his house so he gave me one. After my next track day on the 25th I am going to build a manifold and down pipe for this thing and let you all know how it goes.

It will take a regular T3 flange but spool time will suck. My friend is using this turbo on his honda b16 which is way more efficient than a BP and he says it's a bit on the laggy side.

all the others were way bigger the next size was a hx 35 and it went up considerably from there. I also plan on making an intake manifold at the same time so it should be a fun project
