I rebuilt one for a freind and the whole cost including labour came to about 5k. That was without valves, seats, springs, rockers and I don't think I did the lifters as they had been done before. Add all that on and the price for a stroker kit and the price starts rising fast.

Yeah fair enough, was he running a manual or auto behind it?

I would just rebuild it as is.

Watch that and learn.
LOL, that is a good example of what not to do unless you want to re-do things.

Scotty did a number of questionable things with the build of that L67 and its certainly not a stock rebuild. Just watch the first time he puts the pulley upgrade hub onto the first blower snout and fucks it. That show isn't a great example of good workmanship but great for a laugh and if you want to see **** blow up,

Yea I saw that but he did say he stuffed up and fixed the issue.
It's more that they have a realistic power goal not the workmanship.
