Just a quick question.
I want to get an engine rebored and tapped, does anyone know a ballpark figure as what to pay? It will sway my decision knowing.

I have a rough idea in my head, am just after opinions

Just got off the phone, about £60 + VAT for rebore, and around £30/40 for the head tapping.

As easy as making one phone call smile

(btw I couldnt be arsed going down stairs and browsing the Yellow Pages)

lidl have a set there 4.99 good enough for clearing threads, the last thing you need is a snapped tap in an ali head,

i tend to go for a 1/8 turn of the tap in ali as you can never tell when it will give way smack
