I'm in the final stages of rebuilding my 2.7L. I am probably the last person to talk to about this right now. After months of work and thousands of $$$ the engine is in, but it barely runs. I just don't know enough to make it run correctly again - too many things have changed at once. My experience level also was a few V8s, and the actual rebuild was not technically hard. What was hard was that there is not "a kit" for rebuilding. You have to find all the parts - and for me, I'd go until I ran into something I needed, then I'd have to order it, and wait. Then it's hard to find one shop that will do all the machine work required. I had parts scattered all over the country. Right now, if I had it to do over.......I'd probably suggest buying a running engine to install. That doesn't guarantee that what you buy won't have its own set of problems. Unless you want the experience of rebuilding it yourself.
