$6000 for everything from carb to oil pan, flywheel to balancer including headers, mounts and dist. I have $6500 in it not counting the last freshen up which was also the first one (really it was just a teardown for inspection but I ended up putting in new rings and bearings while it was apart). Only about $500 of that is machine work for boring, balancing and fixing the heads for screw-in studs. I did the rest of the work myself. This motor has roughly 50 passes since first built. Only 10 or so of these were 1/4 mile. All the rest were 1/8th mile.
