Default Short Block Rebuild

Hey all,

So I had my engine rebuilt 2.5 years ago. The engine has run well since rebuild, but uses a quart of oil every ~ every 800 to 1000 miles. It appears that reusing the stock pistons is what's causing this issue. I spoke with inlinepro (I live local) and it looks like rebuilding the short block would greatly reduce the oil loss issue. Price seem reasonable and oversized pistons would be used. I know many of you dont like rebuilds, but I'm looking for opinions. Since the car is running well and it's not my daily l suppose a short block rebuild isn't needed asap.

Inline pro rebuild would be your most reliable option

they rebuilt by engine and made it an f24 if you can spare the extra few hundred I would recommend it, the extra low end torque is amazing and their rebuilt are build to handle massive power reliably

they are top notch!

How many miles on your rebuild? The engine build cost isn't significantly different, but I would also need and EMS and tune, correct? Making it an extra ~$3000.

Totally worth it. I have a 2.4L with AEM Infinity tuned at Evans Tuning 3 times. So badass, love my car so much!

Im about 3k miles into the rebuild, drained the oil out at 500 miles like suggested and just did an oil change the other day and after 2500 miles on the oil the level was still perfect and came out clean. As far as the tune, etc. I was already supercharged and made 399hp/267 ft/lbs prior to the build and with no other modifications I put down 451hp & 301 ft/lbs with evans tuning it

Their customer service & quality is impeccable and i wouldn't recommend anyone else
