Default Oh no's!

Well, did a compression and leak down today. Piston #3 is going out. So, im looking into 3 options

1. Replace the damn rings [:@].

2. Rods and pistons.

3. (my faovrite) Score a C5 block and use my B16 head.

Id go with option 2. Granted the c5 would be nice, but if you forge your insides and have a great fuel delivery system/tune youve got a fast turbo honda that will not give ya any problems. I say SRP Pistons and Eagle H Beam Rods.
