Im in the process of rebuilding a 01' Ive already pulled the engine, head and #2 piston out and waiting on the guy to check the cylinder to see if it needs to be bored or sleeved. (Injector nozzle chipped off) So i guess, the question now is. How hard is it to rebuild one of theses bad boys? And also is there any special tools that you need?

Im looking at a complete rebuild kit. All gaskets, seals, bearing and pistons.

Also what are some mods that i should go back with?

One more question and im done. Lets say there is a chance i could have a 53 block. Is there any parts i could use and swap with a 12valve?

Thanks for all your info and comments!!

I have a block torn down in the garage -

Can get a good rebuild kit for about 975.00 with new pistons rings, bearings….everything.

I am gonna go with 40 over pistons and 12V rods when i do my build.

I have a 12V tore down as well so I'm not really out anything.
