alot of people told me to keep the original engine!! I think it maks the car worth more when it becomes a classic or somthing.. Besides it really wouldnt be a cutty with everything changed (paint, eng, suspension,tranny, interior, ect)

that price is ridiculous....i had a big block rebuilt 454 turned into a 502 monster and i spent like $1800...

u need to speak to someone in charge over there, and get it resolved, if not u might have to go to court, or u can just break into the shop and night and take ur motor, but i didnt tell u to do that...

plain and simple, its not right. if ther're chargin 2400 with no labor, what would it cost WITH the labor, ya hear me? DO NOT PAY THEM. 307, no offense, are a dime a dozen. Let them keep the whole thing. if your gonna spend that cash for a car that will only cruise, and the most horsepower you'll need is the occasional gas hop, you could get a new crate motor, with a warrenty. If "everything" was bad on your motor, a respectable engine shop would have told you to find another starting point. get it?
