Lou, it's all about the spec. For instance, if the valve seats and guides are worn beyond spec, if the cylinders are beyond spec, if the crank bearings are out of spec, it is going to cost more to rebuild than an engine that hasn't got scored and ovaled cylinders, spun bearings, sloppy valves, etc. A well maintained and babied 2000 hour engine will be a cheaper rebuild than a beat to hell, never maintained 500 hour engine.
