rebuild, stock 26's have a tendancy to destory themselves

 

once they are built they are pretty much bulletproof

I'am leaning more towards the rebuild, cos if i put another stock one in i run more of a risk of spinning a bearing again.

but if i do open it up for a rebuild, i wont to do most of the bottom end, like pistons, rods, crank, oil pump, oil sump and a oil restrictor in the head!

but not sure if that is doable on a 10k budget with labour included?

i know with a rebuild it can be cheap and fast but its not going to be reliable, or It can be fast and reliable but its not going to be cheap.

 

but I'm not to sure what cheap is though, cos i found these rebuild kits with spool H beam rods and cp forged pistons for $2300., and would that be cheap, fast not reliable?

Cheers.

If you're not building a monster you won't need rods. The stock ones are mint.

 

Just go for pistons, headgasket, oil pump, water pump, crank collar and oil restrictor in the head. Get the machinist to bore out the oil returns in the block slightly larger and if you want fit an external oil return in the back of the head.

 

That's a rock solid 300awkw RB26.
