I have a beautiful 07 tsx 5-spd (dif tranny after my 6 blew up) with 225k mi. I am planning to restore and be a "like factory" (wNt to keep motor 100%stock for now) example. Im not sure how much ill be driving it but id like to keep it for as best a condition as possible for as long as possible. About a year ago i had compression loss in the motor, most likely an exhaust valve leak. I would like some opinions on what i should do. My opitions include:
-Rebuild/repair the motor (i enjoy this but it could be expensive and time consuming amd i wanna get this done asap)
- Buy a replacement motor for it (would be super easy drop in amd drive)
- buy a different k24a (not super interested in this because i really love the stock feel of the tsx but if you can make a good case id def consider it)
Any imput is really appreciated. If you do have a particular opinion for what i ahould do, please provide any steps to take. Ie. If you think i should rebuild it i would really appreciate a list of parts and procedures that should be done considering the milage, or if you think i should get a new motor, sugesting a reputable company or ways to identify that its 100% a genuine 06-08 tsx motor.
Thank you for any help, i really cant wait to be driving my tsx again
