hello everybody! you guys know how much i should pay to put d16a6 oversize pistons into my d16z6? i called my shop today and they said it will cost around $2000...? is this right? they said they will have to send my engine to a machine shop and check and balance everything prior to installing it... can't they just remove everything, bore the cylinder then put the pistons? thanks again guys for your help!

Bore, hone, new rings, replaceing and sizing new bearings, parts and labor. $2K sounds high, but if there balanceing, removeing and replaceing the engine and blueprinting everything it's not unbelievible.

I rebuilt my entire D with p29's new everything with machining it cost me 700 cdn!! All OEM parts. Mind you I did it myself. The only thing the machine shop did was bore the block and put the new pistons on my rods!

cost me 40 bucks to press pistons onto rods. that's it!.
-but, in you case, you have to bore, hone, balance...etc.
-might as well get a b16a for all that trouble. -same horsies, and still room to upgrade-
