I am trying to figure out a price, and parts list to do an engine rebuild. As I haven't had any issues yet just what I would like to do in the future to have a good reliable, balanced, 600-700 hp daily driver/tow rig. I figure at least $6000 but don't know what really needs to be replaced or which shop to go with.
I just rebuilt my 04.5 twice the secound time due to not replacing connecting rod bolts originally. For the power you're wanting you're looking at an easy 8 to 10k in just parts esspecally if you get injectors too. That's replacing everything besides the block and head basically this last rebuild I have new crank performance cam new rods and pistons plus all gaskets and bearings that was a total of 5,100 plus 2,500 in injectors originally and all the machining and rebuilding the head was another 1,500. This was all just to run up to around 400 horses most all stock parts.
the custom after market parts price is 2 to 5 times the stock OEM Cummins parts.
it will take coated pistons, aftermarket nozzles, larger or twin turbos, head studs, and a custom non stock cam with springs to get you to 700hp.
