I need a rebuild


I am a true dsmer at heart but unfortunately with with 3 kids, a nagging wife, 60 hr a week job, and no garage i am not able work on my 1g. I know there are plenty of people with dsms and want to earn some money or probably work on cars for a living that would love to take on my project.... enough intro i will get down to what needs to be done.

first off i have a ridiculous amount of blow-by everything still runs but if i get into boost i fill my coolant overflow with oil, the dipstick pops out and sprays oil everywhere so i believe it is time for a rebuild. i have no problem with paying for a job i just don't want to pay shop cost every again... person must supply build plan before i hand over any type of money and i will be requesting receipts at completion.

Chances are you could benefit from a complete rebuild, but your coolant symptom suggests a blown head gasket. As far as the oil pressure shooting past 100 psi, that may be normal. 4G63s are known to produce a lot of oil pressure under load from what i have read. Some non stock turbos like the one i run are only designed to see well under 100psi at the turbo. As far as a 14b or 16g, they can take more oil pressure. I'm guessing that you have an aftermarket oil pressure gauge but it only goes up to 100psi, since you said under boost it shoots past 100. You can port your oil port relief valve on the filter housing to lower your oil pressure some. This is recommended to be done when balance shafts are eliminated so that the oil pressure will remain close to stock with the deleted shafts.

Either way you go, a complete rebuild is going to be more expensive and more time consuming that you probably are expecting. The further i looked in to my engine the more work that needed to be done and that raised the price. I was ball parked about $300-400 for machine shop costs, but by the time i got all of the work i needed done to support my set up it was about $1000 for the bottom end and another $300 or so for the head just for machine shop services. I don't mean to scare you away from rebuilding it, but just plan to spend more money AND TIME if you go for a complete rebuild.

Thank you for the respond and i understand the dollar aspect of what you saying which can be expected when u rebuild anything... machine shop cost is a given, parts have to be found, and labor has to be paid (within reason) i have called multiple shop and for whatever reason i cant get under the 5 grand marker and the worse part is i know it can be done for less thats why I'm looking for help from some locals that have more time than me to take on my project... to be honest i wish my kids were in school and i wish we weren't opening another store because then i could just take 2 weeks and only work on this myself but unfortunately i cant and now my dizzum is down so it has been cramping my transportation
