    A few questions to consider..What is the warranty status on a new or rebuilt motor, and how confident are you on your own rebuild? Sometimes if you're worried about loss of use it's a good idea to pick up a used motor, throw that on the bench to rebuild while you're still driving around on your current set up. I'm personally a fan of Jasper rebuilds 3 year, 100,000mi warranty.

    The rebuild can be done in 3 days no doubt. However, the machine shop you choose has a lot to do with how long you will be down. Most machine shops I have delt with can get the job done in ~ 1 week. I know some people think they can get away with honing the cylinders and throw a kit at it, that usually ends in diaaster and they end up spending twice as much trying to save $300.
    At a minimum you will want the block bored out to the next size/ mains checked for alignment/decked and dipped. Rods reconditioned/head reconditioned/crank checked and ground to next size if required.
    You only want to do this once so spend the extra and do it right.

    It is a much. much better system.
    To be able to look stylish one must wear stylish clothes. I think I'll have to treat myself to a new sexy lingerie store online uk soon.
