Engine rebuilding and cheap don't go together, esp if you want to turbo is reliably.

are you sure you want to dive into that? I suspect this is the type of thing that you are just going to have to bite the bullet on, but if you are dead set on rebuilding, I have a few tips:

First, do a compression test AND a leakdown to try to determine the condition of the head and if it is in good condition, dont touch it. This will greatly decrease your chance of messing this up.

Second, A bottom end rebuild is not terribly hard, but it takes a bit of care. You need a ft/lb torque wrench that works and some simple hand tools which I know you have. Take it to a machine shop to inspect the block and crank ... dont skip this plz. Most likely you can get away with a simple honing of the bores as the only machine work, thats all mine needed.

Third, Kragen is just fine for bearings and seals. Rings, research it. And dont expect it to cost less than $200 after all is said and done (dont forget head-gasket). Is it worth the risk? if so go for it because its a great learning experience.
