    Looks like the time has come for my '79 2 ltr engine to have a "by pass" operation.

    Could I ask that anyone who has had a good experience with engine rebuilds please help me pick who to go to.

    Looking for some improvements but definitely not a drag kombi. I'm in Newcastle so basically anywhere in NSW would be great, or even southern QLD .

    Thanks
    Dave

    I use Mike at CBB VW Penrith.
    Never had an issue with my rebuild, now over 8 years old.
    He's not the cheapest but in my opinion, arguably the best.....

    For local Dave try Nymers from Belmont or where Mr Beckstar got his done "Flying Volkswagen at Rutherford is doing the rebuild. Glen has been great so far."
    I've also heard lots of good about CBB VW Penrith. Doesn't hurt to drive a bit to get the best;). Just talk to them all:).
    Cheers

    HI @Olive just looking at your old post. I am looking for someone to rebuild my engine. I live on the Central Coast so I was interested in how you went and did your rebuild.
    Thanks Wayne

    Hi Wayne
    Haven't jumped yet as in typical kombi fashion when you think their about to gasp their last breath they seem to regroup & come good(well better)
    When the time comes I feel it prudent to go to someone fairly close, for my experience is generally that the first attempts rarely are totally successful.
    Good luck with your plans.
    cheers Dave

    Hi Dave
    I know that feeling, they do have a mind of their own. Its pretty confusing , everybody has a different opinion .
    Might go a turnkey so I know it goes. Amazing a couple of places I have rung did not get back to me with quotes.
    Thanks for that
    Wayne
