Hello Everyone I purchased a 192k millage 03 spec v with bad valve seals for $600 I love the look of Sentras and am wanting to better myself in driving a standard, seems like a worthy car to invest in and given the chance I'd sleeve the pistons and go ahead with $1500 motor rebuild kit from treadstone, along with machining the heads. If someone can quote me on what there sleeves cost them, I'm more after bulletproofing the motor so if one day it sees a turbo. Realistically plan b is I just wanna get the head machined and change the timing chain and probably new valve springs due to the high millage. I dont have a location I can pull the motor at yet due to being at a apartment I want it out to detail every corner of the car but if I had to leave it in and go with plan b I would. I really desire to learn this rebuild as iv worked on and changed most everything around a motor and suspension work. I'm coming from a 3.6 05 sts iv done alot of work to but its relatively basic in comparison to how In detail this fourms talks. I'm really open to suggestions on how I should attack this I'm ready to get it road worthy and hopefully by the end of April I can have about 2k to spend on this sweet project. I have a decent amount of tools and local to Louisiana. Also if I'm dropping this much into a motor how strong are these transmission, I'm no stranger to fluid flushes and filter swaps, I owned a 03 protege prior that I sold to my friend a bought this.
