hey all,
im going to be doing a rebuild on my ed6, at the moment its stock as a rock, i wanna chase 150rwkw - 170rwkw, can anyone tell me what needs to be done and how much its going to cost me(including labour). ill be getting someone to do this for me most like because i dont got a clue. if use could recomend some places in melbourne (s.e surburbs even better) it would be much appreciated. i know about the usual mods (cam, zorst system,cai,diff ect) but when it come down to head work, bearings, pistons, valves..........ect i dont know nothing. im looking at having this done in the next few weeks as i think my big end bearing is on the way out. i got a little bit of advice in another thread but thought id start a new one on topic.

the main reason you got nothing is because this question gets asked ALOT.
use the search function and you'll get all the info you need, with us all having to type it out again

but that won't make anywhere near 170rwkw without a big cam to go with it, and most likely higher compression/rebuilt bottom end....

big cam = chip & tuning as well. I agree with tickford, unless you can get good prices and build yourself $7000

I spent $7000 on a FULL rebuild, inc ALL labour, just on the engine. That incleded converting to an EF manifold as well.

I achieved 160KW at the wheels with my $7000, and regret spending every cent of it. Save your money, and in a year or two buy a BA/BF, if you can still afford to run a big car.

But if you must, look at a turbo setup, dont go naturally aspirated. It will cost you the same and be SO MUCH better. [talking from experience]. There are many good quality turbo kits available out there.

you guys need to shop around a bit more...

just for a basic rebuild shouldnt even cost $3000

but if you want labour for remove and replace engine then more

plus more for porting etc...

engine management / dyno will add a lot to that but it will on any engine

if you have any quotes put them up...ill try to find some of mine
