                  Blaydon vauxhall charge approx £350 to fit the new engine

                  sell the old one for spares and make some money back.

                      Think it costs £600 from MPG or Regal to put a new Piston in, but if your thinking of keeping the car for a long time go Forged internals 2k fitted
