Does anyone know what the book time is for a swap to another 2.7L motor on our tibs? I wanna buy the NGM shortblock and am looking at prices so I know how much I will need in the summer.

Book time is about 28.5 hrs because of transfer of cylinder heads and and other components. With a shop rate of about 75.00 an hr, would run ya close to 2200.00 dollars :3_frown:

Yes, book hours versus real time is a horrible exchange too

2 people can have a Delta out of a tib in 1.5 hours
exchange heads in 2 hours (cam removal)
put it back in under 2 hours....

I have a video of a Delta in full trim being removed by 2 people in under 45 minutes..

Thanks Usagi, I'm gonna need it.

Do you guys think I should do it with a few of my friends? Weve swapped motors before on other cars, why not the tib?
