would anyone buy rebuilt EA81 or EA82s?
Posted 06 September 2003 - 04:07 AM
so we have the experience and such..
what I am wondering, is would anyone want to buy a rebuilt engine? right now the ones we are working on a lot of, is ea81s.. and some ea82s...
prices can vary, depending on if you have a good core, or parts for the rebuilt, or the level of rebuilt (just head work, just gaskets, or full rebuild.. ect.) or even things like the high compression ea81 mods and such..
we can also have them pre-installed with a weber too! (for carbed ea81/ea82)
so what do you guys think? could I get some buyers if I do this? anyone have an engine that they would like repaired or rebuilt?
(and keep in mind, they will be shiny clean too!)
the pic attached, has a "before and after" style to it, its one head, half way thru cleaning.. (remember, this is inital cleaning)

sounds like a good op you can have going. but it would seem you wuould need a little money to start. maybe throw the first together and eat the cost, then profit on it with another core and then you're set!

I already have an EJ22, and an ea81 in "holding"
so that could be a possible canadate for a sale, if anyone needs an EJ22! (but that one will be a pricey one!)

i'm sure you would have a good market out there, since there are enough subarus to put motors in!
good luck, austtin

High compression pistons?
Port and polish?
You should just whip up a price list for various services.
For your own safety you should write a limited liability contract for you and each customer to sign stating the services rendered and results expected, so you can't get sued.
