    2003 GTX - new engine


    Water somehow got in to my brother-in-law's 2003 GTX 2 stroke engine (kids!) and it has seized. The local dealer has quoted $3K for a new engine installed. My questions:

    - Is this a reasonable price?
    - Is it reasonable to consider a rebuilt engine?
    - Perhaps redundant with point 2 above, but how much would it cost to rebuild his, assuming the worst?

    He is located in Bayview, Idaho (middle of no where in N. Idaho), so there are very few options locally. Any ideas appreciated.

    $3000 is considered a good price for a complete 951 engine(running) with MPEM. I think that for a replacement block and labor to install $3000 is reasonable.

    Welcome to the forum!

    If your bro-in-law has no wrenching ability, then the 3k is ok. Make sure they are buying an OEM Rotax rebuilt engine and not a SBT rebuild though. Otherwise, get the Rotax Reman from a dealer and install it yourself, and save almost half.
