    ive got the tools, for most operations, Ive built over a hundred engines, and I know a bunch about which local machine shops can,t be trusted, and do crap work.
    Ive priced out similar engine builds , your kidding yourself if you think the average guy paying average machineshop costs and buying parts retail will save much over those crate engine prices, yes theres theoretical advantages to building your own combo. you can sellect each component,sellect better quality parts , take more time to do the detail work to tighter tollerances,and use parts you may already own, vs getting what the crate engine provides,which in most cases is not the best parts available, but you also take the chance of sellecting miss matched components and don,t get the warranty the crate engine provides if theres one. and the "WHILE IM AT THIS...TENDENCY" tends to push the price up and get you into trouble that may prevent you ever driving the car of your dreams or any car for that matter if it gets way out of hand!


    Ive HAD over 700Hp in as corvette that was rarely street driven, yeah! it can be done and yes everyone that can afford to do it probably should at least once own a truely powerful car, not practical, but something youll REMEBER all your life........and yeah I regret selling the car but hey, life and finances take un-intended swings and at times you do things youll regret but have few choices at the time
