Well I got a problem ticking noise coming from the head. 4th gear redline just about, someones knee was in the way, couldnt get it into 5th, it went into 3rd, hit about 8,000 rpms. Something up towards the top is ticking. Its a 93 integra gs. 158,XXX miles. If anyone has any ideas please tell me, im gonna get a small video/sound up tomorrow to see if anyone can help me solve my problem. If its just going to be something small or do you think it would be wise to replace the whole head?

it would be wise to not drive it until you find out what the problem is... you most likely bent a valve from slapping the top of the piston. if i were you, i would do a leakdown test, then repair as needed. sounds like it is probably a valve ticking.

valve adjustments aren't hard. best thing to do is go to autozone or another parts stor and pick up a Haynes manual for the car. it walks you through most repair procedures for the car from where to look for parts to how to do some major overhauling. I know for a fact that valve adjustment is in there!

First of all, I doubt very much that you hit 8K on 3rd because the rev limiter would have kicked in at 7.2K. Besides if this is a stock 93 GS motor it should not break after a brief excursion into 8K, if it really did. If you bent a valve (quite unlikely) you will have driveability problems...poor idle, poor throttle response, stumbling on acceleration and really really bad gas mileage. Valve clearance adjustment is very easy. My 10 year old can do it. Go to G2ic.com and in their car maintenance section there's a step by step show and tell with pictures on how to do it including all the tools you will need (not much) and spare parts that might be needed (valve cover gasket and liquid gasket.) Try it! It's part of the fun of owning an integra.
