Some of you may remember a while back in the long, long ago when we were discussing Zondifying a Merc s600: http://carbuying.jalopnik.com/how-to-make-a-…
So, I have an idea and I'm trying to figure out whether rebuilding one of these engines makes any sense or whether it would require highly specialized technicians to work on. Could I take it to "any" reputable shop to be rebuilt or is that just a bad idea?
To be clear, I just want the engine. But I want it to be newish when swapped into sumpin else. The whole car can be had for under $10k so why not just find one in crappy shape and redo the engine?
Let me know what you think.
