Post How much does machine work cost?

I need a 350 hot tanked, crank turned, cylinders bored, and line bored. I would also like to have the engine balanced. I had this engine in my street stock circle track car and it ate three bearings and bent one rod. ha ha I guess you can't take an engine with 100000 miles and race it. I live in north central Missouri
Thanks
Tim

ps i busted a main cap so i am assuming it will need line bored.

I've been paying $25 for hot tanking, $8 per cylinder for boring, $125 for line boring, and $125 for balancing.

I have been racing at Mizzou Speedway in Moberly Mo. The crowd hasn't been much there the last few years, but maybe you have seen me. I have been running the 4 cylinder class mainly i have a 94 cavalier purple with number Z28. But i bought a 78 monte carlo at the end of the year, i only raced it once it is orange number 19, i finished last i had one jet completely pluged in the carb so it wouldn't hardly run. In case you haven't heard the track has sold and they are going back to dirt.

That's my story

My answer to that question has always been "Speed cost money, how fast do you want to go"?
