I also ordered the Durametric kit directly from them in the US. I'm in Hawaii right now so I don't have to pay all the nasty charges in top. Professional kit £415, thank you sir, that'll do nicely!

Well it's not a rebuild just my flippant description, new piston ring, flywheel, and several other "bits" too numerous to list. Basically the diagnosis and the labour is more than half of the cost to fix it. A bit miffed but it needs doing and I need my car back. Would have been more had I not questioned the need to change the manifolds as they had oil in them (obviously) the first guy I spoke to said they had to be done, the second agreed with me they could be cleaned perfectly. Had I not questioned that they would have charged me for a full replacement and another £1.5k or thereabouts.
