    Shot peen rods/clean
    Install ARP rod bolts
    Complete internal balance
    Bore .030 cylinders
    Notch the bottom of deck for 400 crank
    Complete valve job and cleaning (not 3 angle) but sure is sweet lookin
    Hot Tank
    New Harmonic balancer (Just a notch above stock LOL)
    Install cam bearing
    Install freeze plugs
    Total $730 /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    that sounds pretty reasonable to me...I paid $670 for:

    -hot tank, magnaflux
    -bored over .030"
    -plateau hone
    -deck
    -line bore
    -bring crank in .010"/.010"
    -balance rotating assembly
    -and assemble short block w/ cam and new cam bearings and freeze plugs and oil plugs

    Then I paid another $310 to get my head rebuild with new seats, guides and a valve-job and shaved .015"

    The things that really docked me were the line bore and deck ($150 and $125 respectively) but I know my block is as true as it can be :-D

    Probably about average from what I remember about prices. Did u supply the ARP bolts?
    I think most vavle jobs anymore are 3 angle equivalnet.
