    Rebuild question

    I'm pondering a cheap engine R&R If I decide to manual swap and rally this car. Mainly because of oil burning/smoke, but while i'm in there, take care of some other stuff as well. Assuming engine is out and on a stand, what is a reasonable time budget to do the following:

    Rings (+ drainback holes)
    Bearings
    Timing Chain kit
    Head gasket
    lap the valves
    valve seals

    I would hit up rock auto and you can put everything in your shopping cart to give you a price. Plus we have the discount code.

    I haven't priced all that stuff out in awhile.

    You'll probably want to do intake and exhaust manifold gaskets too. I think you can get all that in a kit with the head gasket for pretty cheap.

    My off the top of my head guess would be ~$200

    Depends on whether or not you want to measure all your tolerances and get anything out of spec machined.

    If your after a sloppy rebuild, no measuring, sparce torque wrench use, I don't see why it couldn't be done in an afternoon.

    Also consider buying one of those dingle dangle ball hone deals to clean up the cylinders. I think theyre like 50 bucks.

    That was my thinking. I'm sure it will take me a bit longer as I haven't done all of it before.

    This is sloppy. Think 'freebuild' http://www.motoiq.com/MagazineArticl...he-Engine.aspx

    I don't want to have an engine torn apart for weeks.

    The time aspect is up to you.

    But i would vote for more cylinders and some boost while you are in there.
