Just be carefull with the high volume oil pumps. They are not generally needed and can cause major problems in the future. I would stick with the standard volume one. Other than that, prices seem fine, sprints are usually very well priced. I would go the race series pistons and moly rings.

Re: Just got prices for Engine rebuild

what motor is it? if its an I6 you wont need the oil pump - if you really want then get a new stock one from ford, all the knowlegable people i speak too say they are more than good enough for 99.999% of applications.

but really just get the clearences in your stock one checked and it will be fine.

oh yeah - race series pistons are good for up to about 650-700hp so if you decide to turbo it they will be great :D

and i wouldnt suggest moly rings, apparently you get big oil consumption issues with them unless you thrash your car 100% of the time - they are best left to race engines IMHO

Re: Just got prices for Engine rebuild

Any idea on how much balancing the whole lot costs?

I had my V8 race balanced for $264, so it should be a little cheaper for an I6 I would think.

Re: Just got prices for Engine rebuild

Ive had quotes of arround $185 for an I6 balance.

Also, ive heard that the wingfield Repco engine machining place is a bloody good place to get blocks machined etc

yeah i wasnt to worried about the hi-vol oil pump. Mabey just change the spring for an AU item.

I have had quite a few friends go through the wingfield repco and haven't heard of any problems. I went with Chris Milton Engine Developments on Main North Rd. They seemed to be a bit more expensive than some, but they know their stuff and are good to talk to. Worth checking them out for their prices on the pistons etc as well.
