It usually runs about 40 per cyl. That includes a standard .0030, hone and full deck check. Then add milling heads (if needed), Line boring crank (75$), turn crank (50$), rebuild heads (150$)

Those prices may be on the highside a tad bit.. but around here that's what my local machin shop charges... not me, i get the hook up. Jealous? Yep, i know.. lol

Do a leak down and compression test. Then decide what to do with your motor.

Your car is probably slow because of other reasons.

i'd have to agree, don't think your block is the problem though. My stock block has close to 182K on it, and its fine i know others that have 260K on a stock block and runs mid 7's in an 8th mile N/A, just wondering i know you said you have 200+ on the block..what about the internals? 200+ as well?

Yeah it's the original engine. So everything should have 200+ on it.

150 is nearly perfect, most 302's with some miles on them hold about 120-130 psi from what i've always heard.

I recently checked into it and found I could get my 4.6 block cleaned, magnafluxed and bored .030+ for $250 total. That was at two different shops. Both had the same price.
