    Hey I'm looking to have my 99 ecotec supercharged engine completely rebuilt, bored out and machined. I threw a big end bearing and I think I'll just need to replace my crank.

    I'll also be wanting to have my heavy duty gearbox rebuilt.

    Can anyone recommend specialists in Victoria to go to and to steer clear of?

    Is it just a standard engine?

    I’d recommend using a stock ecotec bottom end (less than $200 with warranty for complete runner) and putting the l67 bits onto that. An l67 bottom end is a little tougher if you’re really going to be pushing it. Still relatively easy to come across.

    They’re just not worth rebuilding.
