first i wouldnt rebuild it unless it needed it do a compression test on it and see if all the cylenders are the same also a leak down test (dont shoot me if its called a differnt name) and see if it holds the compression. if its not broke dont fix it...

if u do rebuild it you should save a few hundred more and stroke it..

"stroke it" means your increasing cubic inches by increasing the length of stroke which in turns increases cubic inch displacement. That's how I understand it anyways, correct me if I'm wrong guys.

no thats pretty good.. yes if your gonna spend 6-7 hundred on a rebuild kit u might as well spend another 300 to add about 70 hp to your car...

but remember whatever u spend u pretty much have to double that amount to think about the machine work that is needed
