vinniekq2 If you forget the name they probably are not worth remembering. A well build stock engine is not much cheaper than a hipo engine,quality parts cost money,good machining is not cheap.5 to 600 for a block to get machined is fair(clean/bore/square/deck/align hone/new cam bearings/new frost plugs) some people just wash the blocks and bore,nothing else

azlogger thanks for the replies. i'm not planning on super high perfomance, i just want something reliable. what do you say about a company that bores 350s and sells them as long blocks for $950 + shipping? i forget the name.
11-12-2012 09:31 PM
BOBCRMAN@aol.com Plus clean block. plus crack check. plus r&r cam bearings/soft plugs.

Silver Surfer My local machine shop charges here in Kansas City...
Bore $25 per cyl
Hone $8 per cyl

But you want new pistons so they are going to have to press the wrist pin out
$7 each rod
------
$320

They will likely charge you labor to file fit your new rings too.

If you bring the shortblock they will likely charge you to disassemble and reassemble the rotating assembly as well.

They will charge you to rebuild the rods as well (something like $7 a rod if IRC), which is a great time to swap the OEM rod bolts with ARP bolts.

A long block for $1,300 sounds pretty cheap. You get what you pay for, and pay for what you get. Is this for a daily driver or performance?

If performance and installing new pistons, you really ought to balance the rotating assembly, $225.

cost of boring an engine
