hi all, i have a 20xe that ive been cleaning up the last few months and now want to get it in my cav cdx there was nothing wrong with the engine apart from tappet noise that took about 5 mins idle to settle and about a minute if driving , im just unsure on what to replace , its done 152k so im sure somthing will need replacing it seems to have had a rehone as i can still see honing marks in the bores .
so far ive got...
COVER,AND PRESSURE PLATE
CYLINDER HEAD GASKET SET
CAM BELT / rollers / tensioner
2.0 8V sump GASKET
ARP rod bolts
+ random new bolts
was quoted about £370 for all this from a friend that works at vauxhall and about £70 for arps iirc
and finaly the things i dont want to do myself.... hence not sure about bothering doing them
oil pump how long will these last ?
big end shells / piston rings ?
valve stem oil seals
and anything else ive forgot
can anyone gen me up on whats worth replacing at this mileage also its a coscast head and forged pistons etc if that makes much difference
