Ya this is in no way going to be a 5K dollar engine lol. I've had those and then some, but this build is for a cruiser that will make decent power and some good low end torque (looking for over 300 ft/lbs). I wouldn't need to tap the heads as I wouldn't be running screw in studs or guideplates or any of that jaz lol. It'll cost me around $200 for a valve job and to put 1.94's in the current PP heads I have. So about $300 if I go 416's (the extra $100 is for the cost of getting the heads). Down the road if I do a big motor build it will probably be a big block, but the 307 runs pretty good now and doesn't leak/burn any oil. The PP heads have 60cc chambers, so not far off from the 416's 58cc. I'm not going to be touching the short block in it, just top end.
