    For $17,000 that's the best way to go. How many miles do you have on your engine now?

    Not sure where you got $17,000 from. I'm betting a reman is a lot more then that.

    My engine has about 200,000miles on it now and no issues at all.

    A few years back i got a quote for 16 and change for a short block. Based on that is guesstimate a fully dressed long block at 28, maybe 30.

    Yeah, really. Should be about 40 hours of labor, at least. That includes tear down and reassembly.
     
    Wajid8705 and Bean Jr. Thank this.

    Orlando. It might be a little higher now, I haven’t priced one in a while. When I had my head gasket done and the entire front cover pulled and resealed, it was around 3k in labor iirc. That was also in a long hood Western Star, not a short hood Volvo or something.
