Depends on what is wrong with it. Give details.

Also matters if it is installed in a boat or in a shop. Removal costs depend on the boat and can be substantial.

The cats were considered Throw Away engines as they can not be overhauled in place.

The block does not have removable liners , so must be removed to bore the cast cylinders over sized.

The big labor is R&R the entire engine , not the work required to rebuild it.

Look up Jasper and see if they still have rebuilt 3208 , at least you will get a ball park on the rebuild cost.

The R&R cost will depend on how well the boat was designed.

If I need anything to do with a Cat, that's where I would go.
