so the other day as i was driving home the rsx started knocking. so i figured now is as good of a time as ever to turbo it. should i rebuild this motor with forged rods, lower compression and whatever else or should i just buy another stock engine and slap it in.

so basically what I'm asking is it worth it to spend the extra money and do the extra work when i've been seeing everyone say that the stock bottom ends will do great up to 500 hp which is more than im going for anyway

It depends on your goals. But usually factory sealed engines take abuse better than a OEM rebuild in my experience playing with other cars. So your probably better off doing forged internals. And how low are you thinking about lowering your compression? With my build in looking to do the opposite and raise it a touch.
