    Hey guys,
    This the first estimate I got on redoing my engine. I plan on getting more, but how do these compare? They are a reputable shop in the area which also build a lot of local race motors /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    Hot tank parts: 25
    Magnaflux parts: 18
    Install cam bearings/freeze plugs: 25
    Bore and hone cylinders .030: 112
    Grind crank: 72
    True rods: 72
    Press in wrist pins: 38
    Machine heads for S/S spring kit, install hardened seats, 3 angle grind: ~200

    Anything I'm forgetting to add to my est? Thanks for any help.
    Sincerely,
    Chris /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
