    Default 3.0 V6 TDI Engine rebuilder in Basildon

    Hi,
    I have a friend who has a Saab 3.0 V6 TDI, which has possibly suffered the dropped liner fault, which this engines suffers mostly in Saabs, raely in vauxhalls. I understand that there is an engine rebuilder based in Basildon called Engage? who may be able to rebuild his engine, (unlikely to be covered under Saab warranty due to lack of dealer service history) Does anyone have the contact details for this company please?
    Many Thanks

    Many thanks for the post Big-pete. Benny I must admit I'm not sure whether the liners are available or not. I have posted the same same question on the Saabscene website, as this was where I read the thread about a 3.0 TDI rebuilder in Basildon. That thread suggested that the company details were obtained from this forum as the Saab thread indicated it was a Signum owner with a blown 3.0 TDI had posted the company details on this forum, hence my post on here.
    Looking at the info posted by Big-Pete, I am wondering if Engage of Basildon is an acronym for Engines and Gearboxes of Basildon? (who actually are engine rebuilders) just a thought
    I am going to contact them to find out if they are a company who can rebuild the 3.0 TDI engine.
    Thanks Again.
