The cost of just the TA block is $4600. To machine it....prob $3000, but that's a total guess because it depends on what your doing to it to get a more accurate cost.I wonder how “ready” a TA block is. Just my shortblock work here and I’m almost half way to the cost of a TA block.
I was just in shock. I had a 408 stroked 351w about 8 years ago and the machine Work was half this. I just can’t believe it doubled in that amount of time.
