Buy from TSE, or if you're a masochist and want to save like $100, copy their setup:

Honestly I am not sure on that.

At the end of the day if you have never built a motor, the TSE motor is a damn good deal. If you are trying to do a built motor semi cheap you will end up with exactly the same setup that they build. Knowing that you are getting a built motor from a known good engine builder is worth the couple extra hundred it is to get it from TSE.

i agree and i looked up there area code i belive they are in Santa barbra. Im stationed at Camp Pendlton so its only 4 hours away i think im gonna call them and see how they would charge to do the work i dont have alot of time on my hands lol. Ive built engines before i just dont have anywhere to do it that wouldnt cost me alot of money so im thinking if i can convince the wife this is perfect lol
