Re: Rebulding engine on tha cheap!!!!! (Clownracer v2)

Total parts is only 50-100 bucks depending on where you get em from. Start off by spending the 35 bucks on a Bentley, and read the entire procedure. This will let you know how much you're biting off (it's about the most involved repair people will attempt on a car, but really it's not THAT bad), and let you know all the parts you need. You can get complete gasket kits which ensures you don't forget one (try calling/emailing Pottermans at parts4vws.com).

Since you're on the east coast, try Adirondack Auto Brokers Their prices are cheap for OEM parts and shipping won't be much at all to you.

good point, hadn't meant to deny Adirondack either, they have good prices and a faithful customer base here.
BTW, the $50-100 I mentioned is just the routine stuff of course. It can go higher if it turns out you dinged a piston and need a new one, or if you've got a warped head that needs machining, etc... But the wear and tear items are cheap.

and then of course you don't know if any of that stuff's buggered until you pull it all apart? I've been thinking about doing this just for the hell of it since there's some miles on the car and I wanna make it into the best running machine I can

Re: Rebulding engine on tha cheap!!!!! (Clownracer v2)

I just had a 2.0L 16v block rebuilt..............
From Adirondack:
$324.60 + shipping
(I can list everything I bought from them if you guys are interested....just don't feel like it right now)
I also shelled out some $$ to the machine shop obviously.....but price will depend where you go.

Re: Rebulding engine on tha cheap!!!!! (Veedubgli)

the engine isn't THAT much of a black box. You should generally have some idea of what it'll need based on how it's running. You should know if you've banged the pistons and valves together (only the 16v are interference design though, generally from a timing belt breakage). The crank or its bearings will generally have made their problems known via noises. If the engine is running fine, there's no reason to tear it apart. Just make sure you're up on replacing consumables (expecially that timing belt).
