    I have a strange tapping noise coming from the engine when revved?? Any ideas also wondering how much a re-spray cost for the entire car?


    Actually thinking about it i have a few more...


    1. What should a healthy VTEC sound like...


    2. What is the best subtle exhaust i can get and good performance specs?


    3. Does anybody know how much it costs to rebuild a B16a engine?


    4. Could I rebuild myself?


    Cheers

    Well if you can't figure out what the taping noise is in the engine , i doubt youll be able to rebuild one..


    And resprays , you pay what you get for, simple as. Go get some quotes at bodyshops ..

    lol. don't thing you should rebuilt it man. its worth paying money to get it done properly. the tapping noise could be from worn out tappets...don't hold me to that though as you can only really hear those when you're outside the car...
