Need rebuild, need advice please
I have a beautiful '98 528i with a M52B28 engine that needs to be rebuilt; rings seem to have gone. My question is... those of you who have done a complete rebuild (assuming no pistons or camshafts needed), how much are you spending? I see this question many times on this post but don't really see any answer. I can get a used engine for about $1,500. But if I am not going to spend more than about $2k to rebuild, I would rather do it myself and know what I have and get to have the fun. So...just interested what some of you have done and what it cost. Have not torn it down yet, but hear that these have iron sleeves on US product; true? Can they be re-sleeved?
Also, anyone know a good machine shop in Portland, OR that you would recommend?
Where have you gone for good component kits?
