I am goin to do it, this is the kit I am goin to buy:
Around 780.00 delivered from EBAY seller - rsracecom
The only thing I dont like about the kit is the compression available, the highest is 8.8.
I was looking more for 9.5 as I used to have 10@1 cast at 15 psi with a T3/T4 and held pretty good, the stock rods bent with the fabulous oil pump as you know exploded. I might as well just do it right.
Thats why I am leaning toward Supertech 9.5 / 83.5mm for 412 and the belfab rods for 300ish or so...
The local machine shop charges,
$15.00 per overbore
$75.00 to clean the tank or whatever the bubble bath it gets to make it look pretty
$12.00 something about the rods or whatever and also to change the freeze plugs.
$65.00 to balance or play-doh thing on the crankshaft
Does this sound about right for the machine shop?
