Need a rebuilt long-block...

I don't think I'm up for a complete engine rebuild... Does anyone sell a rebuilt long block? Or maybe someone out there knows a good rebuilder I can send my long block to...?

Story:
My flood damaged 24,000 mile, 3.6 motor runs well in my ’93 C2, but I found some metal shavings and a small 4x6mm chunk of aluminum that looks like the bottom edge of a cylinder wall in the oil after hearing clunking noise. Before that, the engine ran well though 3 oil changes where I warmed the engine for 5-minutes and revved her a bit – just trying to flush out any water. The oil came out fresh and clean until "the noise." Compression test while cold, no sparkplugs in, and a fresh battery charge, is around 200 PSI per cylinder, except for one that is 165. Oil pressure is good. Engine runs fine. However, I have little confidence in it at this point… Thus, I need to crack her open to see what is damaged. Or, I buy a rebuilt long block which is more on my skill level. I could drop in a complete used engine, or a long block, however, I again have that unknown issue. Any thoughts??

Not sure what you mean by a long block. I'm not sure the term quite applies to a Porsche air cooled engine where the engine comes apart like a bunch of "Lego" pieces. The cylinders are not part of the case and are held to the case by studs that go through the cam towers/heads. If you are going have to replace pistons and cylinders you are not that far from splitting the case and checking for damage there. Jim

Every engine is different. When I say "fair price" I mean the price will be based on your specific needs not some random check list that can add extra cost to your job. It also means that you know the price going in, not an estimate subject to constant increase that makes you wonder what the original estimate was based on. In other words, we give you a price quote not an estimate.
