Why is it cheaper to forge a motor before you blow it up?
I keep hearing/seeing that it's cheaper to forge a motor the first time instead of after something bad happens. Why is this? You still have to replace all the internals, gaskets, and bolts, so how do you come out ahead? What would it cost if I were to build my block now vs building after I popped a piston or rod? Thanks in advance.
