Rebuilt Hemi engines usually cost in the neighborhood of $2,500 to $3,500, depending on the year of the engine. Many auto shops also require a refundable core fee, shipping fee or installation fee at the time of the order.
When shopping for an engine rebuilder, pay special attention to the amount of experience he has and the number of engines he has rebuilt. Also, be sure the engine comes with some kind of warranty which includes unlimited mileage.
Most rebuilt engines come with new parts like rings, bearings, an oil pump and an overhaul gasket set. During the rebuilding process, the rebuilder should recondition the heads and connecting rods, bore the block and grind the crank in order for the rebuilding process to be authentic.
