    hey guys, im looking for a engine rebuilders in QLD

    im rebuilding my 4agze and im at the stage where i need to get it honed and skimmed. i wana go all out so im also thinking an acid dip aswell and maybe valve grind

    so what im looking for is where you have been, what it cost? and did they do a good job.

    im looking to do it on a budget but i know what u pay for is what you get.

    if you or one of your friends owns these facilities i am a manager at a tyre shop and could possibly do you the best deal of your life on a set of boots for a discounted rate on services

    any help would be cool- Cheers Luke

    I recently did this through duncan foster in Sydney on my 7a.

    Acid Dip : $60
    Hone : $80
    Surface Grind: $55
    Crank Polish: $75
    Environmental Levy : $10
    Consumables : $10

    They also supplied rings and bearings for around $140. The work appears to be good, clearances measured accurately etc.
