    That's about the going rate.
    I paid $400 for my 454 to be done, but it was torque plate honed and I had one sleeve put in too.

    make sure they tell you how much they took off the crank so you can get the proper bearings

    i was lucky to redue the shops signs and bartered for them to; bore,
    cam bearings, freeze plugs, deck surface, and installed a 4 bolt splayed
    mains for my bbc, balanced crank, and all came out great. :wink:
    the machine shop i went to is right in the middle of a corn field,
    the owner has raced everything and now is into racingboats and
    builds bb blown motors for flying across the water :shock:
