Why not just buy a used motor? Is that a lot of $$?

So basically $500 more than having to buy all the special tools and do just the head yourself.

Then you have spare motor to keep and build up over the next couple years and then boost the shit out of it.

which I would never do.....lol

also the tools could presumably be rented out for what I buy them for meaning it'd be more like $850 more.

also by rebuilding I'd wind up with a motor with all new fresh gaskets and reliability upgrades/fresh seals/gaskets/cooling system. plus receipts for the car since day 1.

buying a new motor I'd have an unknown condition engine with 100k old gaskets etc.

There is one of these in gray/black down the street from my work that literally never moves. I want to go offer them some cheap $$ to take it off their hands.
