Im not going to say do it yourself but be advised to get a mechanic to do this fo you is going to lighten your wallet about $1500 bucks.

Thats a great price, but you also cant find anyone to do it.

If a shop takes your car in they are going to have it for at least 2 days, if a mechanic is working on your car for one day youre looking at 8hrs by about $70 an hour so thats $560 a day

I live in Northern Ky and I have one shop do all my work on the car. They have done a head rebuild for me and also a full motor swap. The motor swap only ran $1300 with a new ACT clutch, clutch master cylinder, and a couple other little things and they only had the car two days. Please note that was just the labor cost though. Still, they do good work especially with Hondas. one of their mechanics is big Honda guy. His name is Matt Lacker, but the shop owner is Rey Morgan. Here are the shop details.

Quality Plus Auto Care
4258 Harrison Ave
Bridgetown, OH. 45211
513-574-0894

Ask for Rey or Matt.

I'd take it to TPR in Cincy if you want the best work done.
