i messaged him and told him he's a retard. 5 grand for a motor with Forgies and a port and polish?

now id understand it being 5 grand if it were say,
dual hks 264's
ats cam gears
oversized valves
hks valvesprings
rmf intake mani
top feed high flow fuel rail
1000cc injectors
ported head, ported everything to match
forged internals
and acl race bearings

Not even a turbo to go with it..and... not even a damn manifold! neither of them! WTF! The guy spent too much on things he didn't need... 1200 on a new head.. why? There's plenty of good ones around.

It may not come with a turbo, but I'll bet he'd throw in a CT26 for another $3000!

I don't really understand this thread. If you want to get used parts, get used parts, but when telling someone what they have is worth, you can't compare used parts to new parts. Starting with a brand new long block and head is exactly that. They are guaranteed brand new, unmolosted parts. Some people like that. The valve-train is top of the line, there are other brands than HKS. Honestly yes, the way he did it is expensive, he could have done it cheaper, but the way he did it is the way he did it. If he wants to ask that much for it he can. Price out doing exactly what he did with the same parts. Maybe you can get better deals than him on certain things, maybe not, but saying things like, "He could have gotten a used head" well sure he could, but that's really not the point.

I'm all for saving money, lord knows I have to spend plenty of it on my car, but sometimes you guys kill meh with your disdain for people wanting brand new high quality parts.

I did not, btw, check prices on the parts he used, so I'm not making any comment on the actual prices of the parts, largely because most of you don't seem to care about that, just about saying what other parts he could have used instead.

meh....its all about the opinion really...this crossed my mind earlier when i read this post, the sad thing is that something is worth whatever you can sell it for really...if someone gonna pay 6grand for that motor, then apparently thats how much its worth, to that one person that is...

Yeah this thread is boring.

If you dont wanna bid on it, dont.

I'm sure he doesnt care that you sent him a message saying he's an idiot, you just sound like some stupid young kid by doing that.


He obviously put time and money into this motor and is trying to salvage from some of the losses. Its a free country.

I was about to go flaming until I saw the second half of the thread. That thing is built properly. You got guys spending $3000 for gen 3 engines that may or may not be good. I dont see how $4500 is an outrageous price for a brand new properly upgraded engine.

It does kind of suck he couldn't throw in a ross racing or the like intake manifold.

still its a little much. I do not see any name brand parts other than OEM parts that motor has been rebuilt with and if its oem parts whos to say it will withstand 400-450hp more than once heh?

Its too much money, you can get a third gen clip in there for less than that.

Ferrea valvetrain isn't name brand? Oh, you can buy a 3rd gen short block and head brand new for less than that?

I take that back I didnt see that... but my point is its nothing too special other than a rebuild and whos to say it will take 4-450hp

I'm not even certain they'll sell you a 3rd gen new shortblock, maybe so, dunno. I'm sure you're talking about a 2nd gen, just sayin, since someone brought up the 3rd

Yeah 2nd gen.
