It was about $3k with parts and labor. I bought the kit from Jim Colley at fastattack motor sports fir $1,250 and labor and a few other rod bearing miscellaneous part was about $1,700. But George replaced a few other non rod bearing related parts while in there. Those are not part of the estimate above

Not to derail the OP's thread.
But did you do the rod bearing as preventative maintenance or did you have issues, just curious? thx.

Preventative. I'm planning on keeping the car for a long time; even if I get something else down the line. So this was an insurance policy on my investment.

if you dont mind answering, how much did you pay for the rod bearing service with george? Im thinking about getting my rod bearings done and just trying to get a ball park figure as to what it will come out to for a job well done.
