302w block rebuild

Hey guys,
I was after some quotes on bebuilding the block on my 302w out of my EB. Basically what Im after is a re-boring, pistons to fit, rods, regrind crankshaft and balancing all assembled. Thing is Ive rang a few places and prices range from $850 up to $2700. I dont wanna pay cheap and get a half-arsed job, but I also dont wanna get ripped off. If anyone out there could let us know how much they're block work cost that'd help.

Re: 302w block rebuild

Clearance / measure short block..It may not need all you say???
I'd ere on the dearer side..JUST check that its fitted with quality parts...
Have you checked prices of short blocks?? As in crate engine??

Re: 302w block rebuild

Im in the middle of a rebuild at the moment on my AU1 windsor block. doing it all myself and the price has jumped up from $2k to $2500 by little extras ive missed. So far Ive got a crow cams roller 621371, ACL chromoly piston rings, crack test block n heads, over sized valves, match port heads, rollmaster timing chain, new bearings throughout, ACL monotorque gaskets full set, doube row valves springs, pocket port intake manifold (done by myself) & new high vol oil pump. this is just parts alone.. and I havent included a ecu or flash to run it yet. ill keep you posted.. shouldnt be too much more then this.. But i would advise giving it ago yourself. once u get rid of the wires n manifold, its just a normal engine... if u added labour into this though it would of gone up by heaps such as ive paid over 1k for testing, porting, valve reseating & new valve guides.

AU1 XR8, 14.59 Stock motor, + Custom Cold air and stage 2 shift kit.. Yeah Baby!

Re: 302w block rebuild

sounds pretty sweet, looks like your working on the same thing as me. Do you know if its worth boring out the block an extra 30thou? I think this brings the 302 to 306 something like 5.1 litres *guess*

Re: 302w block rebuild

A 302 + .030 (306) is 5 litres a 302w is 4.9 something , the 5.0w is actually 4.9 something as well
KEC hot tanked, checked line bore, squared decks to mains, fitted cam bearings, supplied pistons/rings- bored/ honed my block .030 to suit for
$220 to regrind crank 10/10 and supply bearings
Thats as far as ive got, im up in arms about getting the rods crack tested resized, shot peened and new Arp rod bolts fitted or buying a new set of scat I-beams the prices are pretty close.

Plus add another 300 odd dollars for balancing
and a new oil pump is a good idea $80
dont for get the felpro gasket set $120

You might get some parts cheaper
