I think 5K is a good budget, but if you are like me, it will cost you more. "While the engine is out, we might as well do this".

agree with Gofishracing, doing a full refresh is highly advised to do at the same time: igniters, plugs, belt, hose/gaskets, elbows, water pump, alternator, thermostat, f & r seals, injectors, coolant tank, air/oil separator, engine/trans oil change. $5903 (before tax). Little higher than what others have been stating due to the fact i had an alternator that had a cracked housing.

Since the estimate called out that it was ~$1500 just to drop the engine out, it is a good time to raid the piggy bank and do other modifications

As an FYI, I’ve had coolant drips under the nose of my 2011 GT3 twice over the past year. Thankfully not catastrophic, however the metal ends of the coolant tubes by the radiators and under the belly do apparently corrode. Four replaced thus far.
