Some things you left out, are you going to have a shop build this for you or are you going to be assembling it your self?

If your going to be putting it together yourself you should give the shop your whole rotating assembly (pistons,rods,crank) and have them mic the crank, rod big/small end, check the rods to ensure straightness, won't hurt to have the crank/rods/block inspected for cracks.

The pistons you get may have a lowered compression height so the deck should be milled to compensate for that.

I understand the need to stay on a budget, but if you can't afford to do it right the first time can you afford to do it again?
