Cost To Rebuild 1993 12v 5.9 Cummins

I'm looking into purchasing another truck. Being prepared for the worse case senario isn't out of the question. With that being said I would like to know how much it would cost to:
Rebuild The 1993 12v 5.9L Cummins to Stock specs?

And some prices of people who have built them up ?

I don't believe it's ever been done......yet.

It's not a typical question that is asked here. I'd recommend contacting your local dealership with CPL and Serial No. in hand.

Worst case is what I ran into with mine. I had to have the block sleeved, all 6 holes. Cost of machine work was $1K with doing the head. Sleeves and new valves were $800. $1800 and the stupid thing isn't even together yet!!

I am budgeting $1500 for the rest, so I would bet it'll be at least $2k more in parts. No matter how much you think you'll spend, might as well double it.

I will be well over $5000 by the time I'm done swapping it into my 78 Ford CC. Look at it this way, a drop in engine is at least $8k and the cores I was qouted were $2500. Like they say, if you want to play you've got to pay.

a bit off topic so I apologize - but good to see another 70's crew cab swap.

The engine out of my 91 will be going in my 74 4wd crew at some point. But I'm enjoying driving the "little" (when compared to my crew) truck around too much now to gut it:thumbsup
