My thoughts exactly! Regrinds will run a minimum of roughly $350... Springs $550, upper end gasket set.. $250, R &R an engine is $1, 200- $1,500..

If you're pulling the top-end apart to do cams, a competent shop is going to suggest a valve job $350.. may as well spring for a little port & polish $..? Lets check those studs while we're in here.. hmm how about Carrera tensioner upgrade.. misc hoses, clamps , hardware, seals, senders etc... you get the idea!

Oh but hey.. kudos on for the nice/understanding wife!!!
