    Would anyone know if I can still get/where to get a LY7 SV6 Crate engine or reconditioned engine?
    Or possibly even cost to get full recon and what would be needed due to a bearing putting metal shavings all thru the engine?

    Can probably only get a crate motor that old through Holden now. TBH neither option is really worth it, you'd be better off looking for a lowish k second hand motor.

    There's no standard cost for an engine rebuild anywhere and could be cheaper or more expensive in New Zealand depending on labour and machining costs, but 3-5k for a rebuild with all standard parts would not be an unrealistic cost provided the crank hasn't been damaged.
