rebuilding the 2.5 or...?

I've got an ex-mod 110 with the 2.5 NA. Whole truck is down to the chassis for bodywork and clean-up so I'm thinking about venturing into the engine. The truck has about 120K miles on it and smokes a bit. Lots of oil out the top breather.

Normally, I'd just go for a 200TDI swap but what's involved in a rebuild? Something a local shop could do economically? Most of my cash is going into rebuilding the bulkhead and refurbing the chassis so not a lot of cash for the complete swap. Just looking at options.

As a fellow 2.5 NA owner... Sounds like the PERFECT time to go 200tdi....and never look back.

You're like the crack dealer! "Come on man! You can find the money somewhere!"

You find a bank to finance engine swaps and we'll all be in trouble!
