.. Yes, the lesson is don't just check the box and take what they offer, see if they'll do it the way you want it...

.. Actually, I have no fear of a backyard/garage engine builder that knows what he is doing...

.. Not criticizing the infomercial links, just want everyone to realize what they are reading, and not think they need everything being sold to have a good performing engine... for instance, my engines stay together and I've never bought an ARP bolt...

.. This is why the 'junkyard build' articles are popular, they sometimes show good performance boost for a couple hundred dollars added to a used 1970's slug engine in good condition... torque plate honing isn't necessary for a low RPM torque street engine... or the factory would do it...
