View Full Version : Costs for engine transplant

10th January 2009, 02:23 PM
Trying to work out how much it would cost for a shop to put in a 4age and do a manual conversion on a AE71, with me supplying all the parts?

And also any recommendations for someone to do it?

Perhaps you could say where you are located so then we can point you in the right direction.

all depends, always cheaper if u do some sort of work on ur own, if u took the engine out, got sprinter86 from this forum in melb to wire up 4age loom for u and fit it, then u put engine in yourself your set. people say he charges next to nothing for an auto elec.

and i'll bring the beers and poor quality humour :)

i'm always happy to lend a hand, as long as beer flows i can wield spanners like a god, if you've got the pedal box i can chuck that in for you, i'll pull the engine and gearbox out, i can bolt it in. it's just the electrical and fuel shit that i'm not so good at, pretty much the stuff that requires a brain haha
