View Full Version : Blue Printing the block

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but I can't seem to find it anywhere on the forum through the search feature.

I was wondering if anyone could elighten me as to the possibility of blueprinting the block on my '03 GAGT1. I'm sure its possible but I'm interested if anyone has done it and how much it would cost. My thought is rather than invest small amounts of money to gradually bring up the power...why not do as much as possible at once even if it means waiting longer to do it. Regardless I'm interested in hearing whatever anyone has to say.

That's why I put it here. Maybe I'm just using the wrong terms but basically I'm asking if anyone knows the base cost for an entire engine job. In essence I was thinking of getting all the port and polishing done at the same time as having the cylinders bored out or honed (depending on their condition) when I "strengthen" (for lack of a better term in my head at the moment) the engine to withstand the added stress of going blown and/or in the future rigged for spray. Reason I ask is because I want to compare the price of gradually upgrading my car vs. doing it all in one fell swoop. I do realize at the sametime though, that by doing it in one fell swoop it'd cost a ****load of money. At this point though I'm just doing my research before jumping in...I am after all a wet behind the ears newbie so bear with me...

Very cool. I do believe this is what I needed to know...if only the site wasn't down when I looked at it just now...regardless though, thanks a bunch.

I've already scanned through that before. It has great info on everything. Though donkeypunch is down for maintence last time I checked. If it has info on machine work that can be performed on the block itself then I'll have everything I need...short of a shop (to do the work I can't) and the cash to do it all.

The forums at are your best bet for information.. there is a wealth of it over there. There are a bunch of engine buildup threads here too, poke around :)
