Total for all the work that they had to do was $2631. I had them further port and polish the Ford Racing head along with it needing machined for the cam lobes to clear and for the crower springs to fit correctly. also had to recut the valve seats to move the valves further up into the head to bring it into spec so we could get the valve lash in spec. They also machined the windage tray to over the mains and studs, plus some of that covers gaskets and timing tensioner and bearings. they degree'd the cams to the specs provided by crower so they should be good to go. I'll update my original post with prices of everything thus far.

They came with a car i bought last winter to flip. It had a blown motor and the previous owner bought them intending to build a new motor but decided to sell the car. I just put a stock motor in it and sold it. made enough money off it to build this motor and kept the rods and pistons for myself.

Motor is here in my garage.

Ok so progress has slowed a bit as i have been busy putting my house up for sale and fixing little things up for that. But i was able to dress up the motor a little. Also got my exhaust tubing in to fab up my downpipe and dumptube.

Very Nice. Are you going to run the timing belt completely open like that? If you can. Sure is a shame to cover all the go fast parts.
