that's why before buying it, must check and test it properly, i've done so many swaps and haven't encountered any kind of problems so far just because of the checking and testing, it's 90% fault proof
i'm not saying overhaul isn't good, i'm only saying it doesn't work 100% all the time also, your mechanic could screw up in the process but u and he won't know it until after u've run in the engine, the rate of success in an overhaul is also 90%
like i said, if u've got the budget, change the engine, if not, do the overhaul, in both cases u'll need a bit of luck and a good mechanic, so take your chances
Sorry noobie comment but I thot overhaul is more expensive then transplant? Oso overhaul is like new internals (piston, rings ect) in old engine block while transplant is completely used old engine + internals. For H22A - transplant is RM3.5k but overhaul is RM5k
Sometimes bad luck transplant wore engine
IMHO if overhaul price = transplant price then better choose overhaul.
On the side, how will a lay person like me check & test properly the 1/2 cut? Besides looking at odometer and engine markings?This post has been edited by rakyat: Apr 28 2010, 04:59 PM
