I got between polishing motor carbs fuel pump radiator and what have you about 4500.00 so far.but I spent way more then you need to I just wanted to I guess get as brand new as possible.you figure between brakes all the engine stuff and new wheels and tires on the way I spent about another 8500-9500.00 and I still need to do my coil overs up front.

Got the intake back all polished up and dist.Mocking it up vent tube installed had to grind down the header for clearence.Taking the crank pulley off and replacing it with a single groove one and having that water pump pulley and alternator bracket powder coated silver i think it will make the motor stand out in that dark engine compartment.
