engine i paid 7000 plus my zen engine in exchange.
10000 for parts, overhauling, labour, and added new custom brake vacuum. remember this was done inhouse by me and my mechs, so the cost can vary from person to person. i feel i went overboard, its too late but its oki now.

@Danlalan: Its not a fresh/rebuilt engine.So, doesnt need running-in!
And its a 65 bhp engine in its current tune. The major difference in the drive would be its torque and torque characteristics.
