price was drive in drive out. at 20 - 30 bucks a pop for lifters x by 12 theres an easy 300. may have even been a tad more. plus welding and crack testing. head was machined a fair way. will only run 98 octane or will ping. replaced leads at same time.

a fully reconditioned block will set you back $2100 you have to consider if its worth spending money on an old motor.

even if you get a low k's AU motor and dump it in. i have been quoted around 2500 fitted for that into the EB. If the ute's got high kays, then just replace the motor.
that said, the i6 bottom end is supposed to be bulletproof. though i don't trust the oil pump on mine...
