I took my engine apart myself, brought the block to a machine shop and had it hot tanked, overbored 30, and then align honed for the crank, all for about $300. Then I bought a crank-kit from PAW that included the crankshaft, rods, bearings, pistons, cam, timing chain, and a few other odds n ends (gasket kit, oil pump, etc) for like $650. I got to choose the pistons (I got forged flat top for 10:1 ratio), I got to specify which cam (I picked their SSI cam with 260 intake / 270 exhaust, .448 lift intake and .472 lift exhaust), then put it all together with some ARP bolts and studs. So all in all I did the bottom end for about $1000. I spent another $500 on the heads, having bigger valves put in, new rocker arms and springs, seals, etc. So this was $1500 doing most of the work myself. Kind of makes me wonder how they can do a good job for $1200????
