I shop around and source most of my own parts. Considering I had to do EVERYTHING, including fresh seats in the heads, plus optional bits like porting, there's proof you can watch costs and still do it right.

I'll check my spreadsheet again...I think it was actually cheaper than $13k, as my top line figure also included tires, and other ancillary, non motor related bits.

Again, find a good mechanic that is willing to work WITH you, do your own project management, source some of your own parts, pick a plan and don't change direction 20 times and you can do this affordably.
