is that too good to be true or is it just smacky standards? read great things about him here in the forum, so I'm tempted to give it a go and don't think too much about it.
Seems expensive to me.

I'm basing my appraisal of the price on the cost of a timing belt & water pump replacement. Evenn on the TS you'd nit see much change from 400; add in the new clutch kit and I reckon the price is fair for an engine plus labour.

Now there's a surprise!!
But the difference with Smaky the job will be done properely and he will fix all the little problems too and he will pick it up and when you get the car back it will be running as sweet as!Smaky has pride in his work.
So how much would you have charged to pick up and rebuild?

I think that is a fair price.
