Parts are parts, the price should be easy to figure out. Much of the expense depends on how far you go with machine work and who does it. Machine work can get expensive, boring, hone, machining for billet splayed caps, line boring, balancing (heavy metal is expensive), decking, ect. cost me over $3,500 seven years ago in Anchorage for bare block work on an 8-71 383. You save big if you blueprint and assemble yourself; I know you can get quality work done in the lower 48 for a lot less. There are only two shops I would trust in AK, same with the differential hosing narrowing, Jay Childs did mine, reasonably, the rest, including back half, I did, and I can't put a figure on my time over years it took building and painting it.
