Engine with high hours

How one due with high hour engines? Is it overhaul it. Or change the whole engine.
Let say is a 45ps. How much will it cost?

Re: Engine with high hours

The condition of the engine, age, dormant time, and "high hours" are separate issues. What are you referring to as high hours and what is the "45ps"?

Re: Engine with high hours

Ditto above. What are you calling high hours and what is the engine? Was it used a lot or did it sit a lot? We need better info to give a proper answer.

High hours in itself is meaningless. Maintenance, usage, build and others are far more important. Have a mechanic take a look.
