Help! Need to find Engine rebuilder/reseller and installer

My gf has a 97 1.6EL, she just found out today from Acura that her engine is on its last leg. They said it has a bad connecting rod bearing. So what I need to find is a reputable engine rebuilder/used to buy a rebuilt engine and get it installed. Does anybody have any ideas of a place that sells rebuilt tested and warranted rebuilt engines?? The engine I need is a D16Y8.

Dont waste your time rebuidling that motor, it wont be worth the cost. Call up the importers in the phonebook and see what they can get. Apprently Japan Engines is still the most repuitable.
