Need Engine Rebuild

Ok so the bad news is that I need to get my engine rebuilt.

I need a good engine rebuild shop in the NYC/Brooklyn/LI area. My local shop quoted me @ $3000. That's a lot. I figure I could cut the middle man out and go directly to the engine rebuild shop.

Any recommendations on where to go? Thanks

Well... You could buy a built long block, and have it shipped to a local shop that can do the swap... I always try to upgrade as long as something needs to be rebuilt or replaced anyway.

3grand sounds about right. That's an easy 15 hour of labor if not more. With fluids and labor you are at $1500.

So I went the salvage transplant route. I found a shop that actually rebuilds engines on the spot but the owner recommended I swap it for a salvaged engine. He said it was not worth the cost to rebuild it considering I just bought the truck for $2K. It cost me $1900 total for an engine with 79K miles in it to be transplanted . So far so good. This is my 4th ZJ and it seems this engine I just put in is extremely quiet
