Engine rebuilds for 2.3-16v engine

Post by lowlow » Mon 26 Jul, 2010 4:30 pm

Hi, I have a 2.3-16v engine I am in Sydney and I am trying to find a specialist for this engine or someone who works on these engines. So if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Hope you have deep pockets. :shock:

does your engine need a rebuild? do you know it's history?

If you don't, go get a 2nd job, and then a 3rd, to pay for a rebuild, if it is required. taking any kind of shortcut on these engines ends in disaster and many many more $ than you initially planned or thought.

The guy ozcoz mentioned to you does not suffer fools, so don't go to him loaded full of talk, or he'll tell you to get f-ed. he's not interested in time wasters. His skills are without peer. If he gives you any advice, take it humbly and listen to him, because he's built more of these engines than you've had cold beers.
