    Well I can't comment on the complete deal there but most shops charge like $10 a cylinder to bore the cylinders out + a handling fee I"m sure so..hope that helps some.

    The shop I used charged 180 to bore and hone with a deck plate, so 250 with that other stuff doesnt sound too bad. I dont know where my receipt is or I'd tell you how much the freeze plugs and bearings were.

    just as a reference, my builder is charging my about $400 for all the work on my BBC...that is for cleaning and inspecting, boring it .030" over, honing and plateau honing, align-honing the mains, replaceing cam bearings, installing freeze plugs and oil plugs, grinding/polishing the crank, and balancing the entire rotating assembly...

    I'd say go for it, esp. if the guy does good work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
