rebuild question

I woulld post that question to the Tech Forum. I am sure that there are a bunch of people there that could give you a more qualified answer. Also, there is an auto salvage called riteway in Alabama. They may be able to help you with getting a used engine rather then a rebuilt one.

Good shop in Birmingham Alabama?

Anyone know of a good independent shop in Birmingham, Alabama?

The dealership there wants around $200 to do a ppi. That seemed a little steep to me, since I only paid $80 for my last one here in Cincy.

Thanks.

Birmingham PPI

For a PPI I would suggest Central Auto in Homewood. Bob Parker is the owner (nice guy) . They have been around for many years and are quite reasonable. This is a two man shop (Bob/Terrell) with Bob's brother Jim handling the schedule. 205-870-3146

Cheers
