    About how much does each of the following cost:
    Deck block
    Shave heads
    from 1.94/1.50 to 2.02/1.60 valve seats
    hot tank block and heads
    port/polish heads
    magnaflux heads

    thanks, just got a motor for $50. I'm going to get an engine kit from northern auto and splayed caps also, along with valve springs and connecting rods. i'm shooting for 500hp, and i really want to get it.

    Splayed caps means line boring as well, just so you know.

    As to what that stuff costs, I'd be wrong to tell you, I never look at the prices...I just send the stuff out.
