200tdi rebuild in NY AREA

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get a 200tdi rebuilt in NY, preferably in NYC area.
If I pull my engine again I figure I might as well do it all, make sure it lasts and stops leaking.

Smart man. Do it before it becomes a last-ditch effort IMO.

To be honest, I think the heavy lifting (block and head) can be done by any reputable machine shop that really truly cares. Not to even remotely belittle the process but the engine is very simple old school stuff. If the right guy that gives two shits has the workshop manuals they should be able to do a fine job.

Interested in this as well, though I'd be satisfied finding a decent mechanic in the area to do smaller stuff.

I don't know Randy(Tdi guy) but I have seen one of his finished projects and the word impressed is a understatement.

Probably want to find someone who can balance and grind cranks, drill/ream valve seats, line ream cam bearings...

Not many shops have this equipment. You have to make sure the person doing the rebuild is doing this stuff.

FYI...

Performance Unlimited bought DAP last year and has done two 200TDI overhauls in the past year. Lots of good talent there. PU is no longer in Woodstock, they moved to new shop, 3X the previous size, in Bridgewater Corners Vermont. Not NYC, but in same time zone. 3 hours from Bridgeport Ct if you take the ferry.

Other east coast option is Overland Engineering in Elliot Maine (on southern NH boarder), Matt knows 200TDIs very well.

Didn't Rovertek do work on Brandon's 200tdi in his brown truck?

Tom,

Have you priced getting a short block straight from Turner? You'd just need someone to do the headwork then. The price is pretty reasonable (IMHO) and you have a trusted shop doing the really high risk stuff.

He did the head gasket, and 3 months later the block was stated to be no good due to a spun cam bearing, although this can be line boarded and fitted with a new bearing.

Problem with 200TDI's is the head, you cant get replacements, and even Brandon's after it was welded, it failed months later after it was installed on someone elses 200tdi, I don't believe the problem lies in the shops, but with lack of replacement parts available. IMO I would do a 300tdi, as you are guaranteed parts availability for years to come!
