    How much for rods fitted if I supply them???

    As the title says really,

    Im not comfortable attempting to do the rods myself. and I dont know how to do the timing either, so the last thing I want to do it give it a try... start it, then the engine starts falling out the exhuast!

    Im looking to buy rods in a few weeks times. Just looking for labour cost of getting the job done. I have a VAG specialist near me who can do it but his prices are usual steep. (same one who tried charge me 250 to replace a maf)

    so if anyone has got a mechanic to do the work, what was the cost of it. or if anyone on here knows what there doing, feel free to do it for me! Id rather pay someone whos done it before!
    Word!!!

    Come down to us and get Phil Miller to do it, I'll put you up over night.

    Head off one day, rods in the next.

    And it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper.

    Lol to compress the rings and put the pistons in and torque up the big ends maybe but taking the head off, sump, cleaning it all up, honing the bores, fitting new rings it all takes time
    Auto data gives 6hours to do rings, so in the real world with no issues 8/9 hours would be a better figure to look at

    Phil is up for it, ping me your mobile and I'll arrange a group text to get it organised. It'll cost you what your local specialist want to change the MAF

    You can lend a hand and learn along the way too, the strip down it easy and to be fair so is the rebuild once you've got the bore honed, pistons on the rods and the crank back in. Just very time consuming.

    Best to do it on a Saturday and Sunday, strip it on the Saturday, rebuild on the Sunday and then a quick run in and take it easy on the way home. Although Phil suggests head on and back off within a day and then a run in and check down the next day.

    I will do! I find it frustating when someone does a guide and doesnt have many pics for the important parts... but then again, we will be covered in dirt and oil plus might not always remember. I'll try my best

    Issam (INA) sends a full kit with everything you need for £570 posted.

    Don't know where you have been getting your rods from, but it doesn't have to be that expensive.

    Not sure the INA offering is for rifle drilled rods and INA's delivery times can be 'optimistic'....

    The $870/£570 INA kits are drilled, and all of the last kits were received within 4 days. Didn't see a single complaint about the 18 he has done in the last month.

    I wouldn't buy off him out of principle because he is an arrogant prick, but the prices are good.
