    Mine to get redone cost me each engine the following
    2200 each engine
    Price of cam and lifters,
    Price of intake manifold
    Price of new manifolds and risers
    Price of welding in custom dry pipes into my new stainless risers
    Price of timing chain covers
    Price of new valve covers

    Engine builder got me the heads and I left my old peanut round toilet heads with him (did not even care to take them home)
    He paid and installed the new valves, guides, seals, springs, retainers, bearings, double roller timing chains and gears, new pistons, rings, all machine work and both reassembled and cleaned (glass beaded all old parts like thermostat housings, balancer, pulleys ect ect ect)

    (guess you went to engine section and saw my hooker barbie pink engines yes????)
    Rough pricing on the items listed above are
    Intakes = 150 +shipping each (yes polished)
    Chrome junk =100+shipping
    Exhaust = 630+shipping
    Exhaust pipes chrome and inner dry pipes = 140 +tax
    Misc stuff like 8 riser gaskets and all new bolts and stuff like that you never figure on but you end up buying it
    Bought 2 new oil coolers/PS coolers also from BAM
    It adds up quick but with just under 1000 HP ill be able to sell it for a half way decent amount cause I have never ever seen a 280 Baja any year with this much HP and attention to detail as mine (especially after I paint it this fall or next spring)
    all in all, I probalby have about total each engine 4500 -5000
    but over time you can deal with it, if you do it all at once you get wacked hard
    I bought the intakes and other misc stuff over the winter time and spread the cost out so it was not that much of an anal slam all at once
    You know the drill
    PS pulling engine out with fork lift was a breeze, cherry picker might be real tough!!!

    The cast crank will handle 450hp without a problem. I ran one on a stock 330 and 174 B&M.....475hp @ 5200 rpms for almost 3 seasons.

    I recently sold my '89 330 long block with 270 hours to a local marina for $1500. I included the iron intake and exhaust manifolds that needed to be surfaced. Also included the flywheel valve covers and oil pan.

    Most MKIV 330 engines were 2 bolt main (good to 600hp with cast crank in drag cars). I beleive that all Gen5 & 6 engines came with 4 bolt main and some came with cast cranks as well (Gen5 was introduced in '92 in think)
