I still feel good about this combo. Even if I end up 200 over budget for decking and arp bolts
Look at it this way race teams are commonly 200k over budget. 200 bucks is nothing budget is very hard to keep when building an engine. Without starting from new you never know what the machine work is going to cost. So 200 bucks to make it right is pretty good. I am currently 1500 over budget on my junk yard motor that had perfect bores. So i would be dancing at 200. LOL
Glad to hear its coming together. The most expensive words you can say at the machinest are "might as well".
