    They are on my short list.

    What'd you spend, all said and done?

    I had a lot of extra work done, but for starters figure $2,000 for labor (remove, dissasemble, reassemble, reinstall), $1-2,000 for machine work, and $2,000 and up for parts.

    For example just the crank and forged pistons were $1,000: you might not need or want the hardened crank which was $300. Forged pistons are almost $700. The Killer B oil pan almost $500, windage tray $200, and STI oil cooler almost $300.

    I also had the alternator (just bad luck), fuel and oil pump replaced with new, all new hoses, new Group N engine mounts, etc. You could spend much less, or quite a bit more, depending on what you want to do.

    After talking with Jay at Wicked, I understand how he will end up quoting 5k for my particular build. He is accounting for the worst case scenario. Still, that's a hefty number that I might try working with them on to whittle away at.

    So, after meeting with Dana from CL I've decided to give him the work. For the money, I will get more out of him by comparison and he warrantees his work for 2 years. Looked over the agreement today and it's very reasonable.

    He owns the machine shop that inspects the critical components and has direct control over the rebuild process.

    He is not advertising services​ through the machine shop so "the shop" is Dana from CL.

    Not gonna lie....This engine is going to be built by a guy in a shed.
