    Less than 1500 bucks I had to buy a few things that were unecessary cause I just had to have them you know the bling bling effect. The complete kit was $550 but that was with everything minus your rods. It came with the arp rod bolts,cam,pistons,piston rings,crank,gasket kit,Valve springs,guides,pushrods,keepers, seals,lifters,cam rod and main bearings, and a kitchen sink. The machine work was around $600 and that included bore,acid dip,complete internal/external balance, shot peen rods and recondition them, 3 angle valve job w/ deck resurfacing(head job) install cam bearing and freeze plugs o yeah and he inspected the block for cracks or any other problems. All together it was a screaming deal basically a brand new engine for $1500. I can give ou more details if you need it. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
