    G'day

    I recently bought a series two mi16 with receipts of a full engine rebuild about 30,000km ago. the receipts added up to more than 8 grand! I must add this was also a dealer who did an absolutely rubbish job!

    I consider it to be a rubbish job because since (within 30,000km) I've had to pull the head off and rebuild it PROPERLY then found the bottom end needs doing, as there is a horrific knock now that the top end is holding compression! So I've decided its getting a change over engine at about 1100 dollars then I'll fit it!

    Just giving you some options!

    Cheers Chris

    Based on my rebuild of Als XU9J4z I think I could do it for between 3K and 4K, The head (included in that price) would need to be sent out and could chew up a few dollars.
