i need to get my engine fixed/replaced ... i appear to have cracked the head, so not being too mechanically minded, i thought id ask ... is $2100 a fair price for a reco motor, supplied and fitted with 3yrs warranty??

better still, can anyone point me in the right direction to get it fixed in sydney?


any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks

yeh $2100 for a recod ed motor is a bit expensive. If you really like the car and want to keep it for a few years then the 3 yr warranty sounds pretty good. But then again you could just buy another ed for that price!
