About how much does it cost to have the heads and */C P&P'd?


I was looking at tranny parts also....and may do them at a later date, with the exception of the TC.....I will definantly have to go with the High Stall TC.
You'll have to call around shops in your area to see how much shops will charge for the P&P work. I'm not too sure.

If your thinking about the torque converter at all do it while the engine is out. U'll be kicking yourself if you don't.

As far as the M112 and the intercooler go. Yeah its possible but a but load of $ for fabrication.

And the stock pushrods are probably fine but the timing chain will probably see more stress from higher # valve springs if your considering them.

Tuning it would be.. interesting.

Making it fit would be, prohibitively expensive.

I'm still for cam, cam sensor magnet, maybe oil sending units.

What about boring it over .20 or so? Would there be any significant gains per dollar?? Seeing how maybe doing a complete rebuild on it wouldn't be a bad idea.
