Well, I did some research, and the OEM crank is 40 dollars more than the wiseco, not including gaskets(the wiseco includes gaskets). I would love to buy an extra motor, but at the same time, I think it is too much a risk. I had no idea that there was so much involved in rebuilding the bottom end. I am very glad that I am spending the extra money this time to hire a proper mechanic. So, my second problem is that the cylinder needs to be redone. How should I go about this? Would it be cheaper to bore out the cylinder, or buy a new cylinder all together, what are my options here? Also, what are some brands that make oversized pistons?
