5 - 6 grand if you upgrade.

I would think for than 3.5k for a standard engine would be unreasonable.

IMO

New engine shouldn't cost more than £2000, so any more than that and you'd be better off buying another lump - or building a decent spec engine like I did :D

how refreshing!

im a bit used to the blinkered view on the "other" site, many people think unless you have built 100's of skyline engines or paid less than 5K for the rebuild its a total waste of time:chuckle:

pick mine up tomorrow. ive had forged pistons and rods fitted, along with some different turbos.
my bill will be £3500 inclusive of vat, so knock off £1500 for the turbos, its about £2k including vat ( i supplied the rods and pistons) then £300 for a remap after ive run it in.
i have all my work done at rising sun in alton hampshire, and find them to be very reasonable compaired to other tuners.

Nothing went wrong with yours though did it? Thats just an upgrade, not a rebuild after something's failed, which undoubtedly costs more ;)
