I went sat and got a quote for getting the motor built . Some of the prices seem good, but others seem high imo.

teardown $100
Eagle rods $310
Wiseco Pistons $450
Deck block $75
Bore/hone $150
Bearings $150
Oil & water pump $200
Gaskets/seals/belts $225
ferrea valves $240
Valve job $300
Clean/assemble head $100
Deck head $50
Valve springs $200
Retainers $150
Assembly $800
Clearance for rods $100

Parts total $1925.00
Labor total $900.00
Machine work $675
Total $3500.00 if I pull the motor, $4100.00 if they pull it. They said 4-5 weeks turn around if I just take them the motor and 6 weeks if I take them the car. What does everyone else think?

that's what I'm thinking. The one thing I really don't like is the wiseco pistons and them boring the block. They will put me at 8.5:1, I want to stay around 9:1. The srp's are cheaper, will keep me at 9.1 and just require honing.

don't bore the block (or not much at least) If you have a place to keep the motor where you live; buy the parts, have them machine what is needed, and assemble it yourself... but the prices seem pretty good to me...

thinking about it, but I don't know if I want any more maching cost for them to fit the rods.

I want to go with the srps. I know people are making massive amount of power with the vitaras, but I want to go with a forged piston.

What about arias piston? I think the ratio will be about 9:1. I was thinking about getting wieso but I'm not sure how much it'll be to bore the block. It'll be cheaper if you know someone that can do it for cheap. with those quotes, its kinda high.

maybe, the k swaps around here are still around 5k. I don't think I could ever go back to na :lol:. I like my d, I don't want to swap it. I love the looks when I bust someone's ass and pop the hood and they see the SOHC ;)

Duck, you need to do what I'm doing... Get yourself a stand, get another Z6, and build up as time/$$$ allows. BTW, who or where did you get that quote?

thats what i am doing also. i am using SRPs in my build, but i will be in the upper 9:1s. the only thing i am going to have the machine shop do is resurface the head and block, install pistons on rods, and have them do a valve job when i build my other head. oh yea and balance everything. i will be plastigaging and building the rest of it.

lol. the only reason i'm laughing is i've been telling him for the last several months to just do it. i found him a z6 block from my drug dealer(parts guy he intruduced me to) and i was willing to pay for it. so he'll have an extra block so he won't go out w/o a engine. shit jason would even bring the block over to his house. he's just scary about spending that much money and not putting it back correctly.

my advise is take your time, don't rush, check your clearences as many times you have to till you feel safe it's correct.
i gave him my service manual cd so he can copy it to his computer and i have dvd video that walks you thru the taredown and the rebuild of the engine. i have two copies i was going to send him a copy, too.

yeah, Remo has got me a hook up on a block, and I have a friend that has a head I can get cheap. The quote was from RLZ in conord NC. I went up there just to check it out and see what kind of price I could get on it all. I'll prob go the same route and build it myself. Ask Remo, I'm scared shitless about messing something up. I guess that's a good thing so I know I'll check and double check everything.

but duck look on the briteside you'll sitll have an extra block so when you're done w/your turbo block you can rebuild the orginal block so if and you ever want to sell you car. you can put the original block fully rebuild back to stock and sell you turbo block. either way you come out winning. the person that buy you car will have a new motor and you know damd well someone will buy an already build block w.all the parts you drop in for close to what you pay to do it yourself. win-win all around. and on the downside if you blow up you motor you still have an extra one build.

well, not really tax time lol. I get a bonus from work the end of feb and have some money coming to me the end of march from some investments. I don't get taxes back most of the time :(. Kristen is self employed and we end up owing the end of the year
