Hey guys ended up bending some valves and eventually spun a bearing so i have been saving for about a year now to rebuild the engine in a big way. Below is the public link to the build on facebook posted by my buddy and the mechanic doin the work. Keep checking it for updates. Ill let you know hoe things are going.
Thanks
Scott

Nice list of bits. Add a PowerFC in there as well if you haven't got one already *whistles and points to sig*.

Parts reached $5500 US. Lucky for me i got my cousin who is a pilot to walk it in so i payed no duty (thanks god). The car has been down for about 2.5 months so far due to the parts being on order. My buddy who is doin the work for me has spent about 1 week so far on it i suspect another week or so once the rest of the smaller parts reach. He is an amazingly talented and absolutely brilliant and works side by side with his dad who has an amazing wealth of knowledge and skill and has come from a racing background.

I really wanted to start from scratch with the engine as it was a jdm import and i didn't know the history. This way i will break it in and i will be able to map my oil changes and maintainence.

Self interest aside, you have so much to gain with a PFC, you have Cams + Springs! Rev the bitch to 9k+ and lower lift... you'll be in lift 100% of the time!

I agree 100% but thats more money to spend again and also im a little worried about the tuning expertise here in trinidad. Most guys that tune do subaru's and evo's not NA. i want to do some research before i start to mess with tuning. But how much you want for it thow :) I will need a conversion harness as well.

What caused the bent valves? Over rev on down shift?

Yep coming into a corner overtaking a honda civic with a b18C way too hard and started to throw gears. saw 9000 in 3rd 9000 in 2nd and that was the end of it. The final straw was racing another civic hatch in a drag and beat him 3 times. On the 4th run i went to chuck 5th and went into 3rd for a split second then clutched down and that was that. Dont drink rum and race.

Probably cheaper to just buy a short block from MWR, with rods, pistons, etc. Then have your engine builder do the head work. That way you know everything is new. Skip the thermostat, it'll only save a couple dollars, but the thermostat doesn't help cooling in anyway. It just opens the system up for full cooling earlier in the temperature range; which has the effect of increasing fuel consumption and probably a negligible amount of extra engine wear. If you want to improve cooling (the stock radiator is more than up to the job under NA conditions) upgrade the radiator.
