  • To rebuild or get a used jap engine?

    HI guys, my car is starting to drink engine oil. no leaks n stuffs so i am suspecting bad piston rings But there is no white smoke coming out from my exhaust.
    i am thinking if i should rebuild the engine since it is doing 260,000km already. or should i just get a used engine?
    Rebuilding cost alot more as i was told that there is some machining job to be done (e.g Honing cylinder and skim heads).
    Can i check if honing the cylinder, can i still use original piston? or do i need an oversize piston?
    Is there a need to replace valve spring and stuff too?

    Thanks in advance guys!
