Need Motor Rebuild
My car has been at the dealer for 2 weeks now. I went to look at it today. The #2 cylinder spun a rod bearing. Its cheaper to just replace the whole bottom end than pay the labor rates to rebuild it/replace crank/head/block. The dealer wants $5,600 to replace the motor. So, I went to 2 different shops this afternoon that I know and asked what my options are since these motors are rare. They'll get back to me tomorrow.
Has anyone had to go through this yet? I was planning on selling the car in the summer and now this. Any suggestions on a cheap solution? I just want it put back together so I can put it up for sale and get my wife her Ford Flex EcoBoost and take back from her my 300 SRT8.
