    Talking 98 z28 approx estimate for engine & trans rebuild?

    Alright so i'm trading my RS for a z28 (funny because its same year and color).. The guy took the engine and trans out to get rebuilt (olny has 71k on original) originally planned to put a mild cam in it, but unfortunately i'll only have enough to rebuilt engine and trans (thats fine it'll be the boost i want back from the 92 z28 i used to have, the sixer is so much slower ..) can any1 give me an estimate of how much the engine and trans will cost to rebuild and get reinstalled? All the guy says it needs it crank kit, a bearing went out so that'll need fixed, and the trans everything was good (reverse, 1st, 2nd, 3rd) , but 4th was rough and overdrive was bad, Trans will need shift and other things... estimate anyone?? anyone from here in Indiana thats looking to make some money that can do these thangs?? thanks alot i appreciate the help

    I paid somewhere in the ballpark of $1700 for my T56 upgrade and the labor for R&R was around $400 if I remember right. I basically upgraded all the internal parts to handle more HP though. It would really depend on what you plan on having done to it. An auto is a little more complex and has a lot more parts than a manual, so depending on what all you want done, it could range anywhere from 1500 to several thousands of dollars. I used RPM transmissions. They are towards Columbia City, Indiana.
