cost for a built motor

I'm thinking a good investment would be to start my hp quest with a built motor first. I'd like to have a part in building the motor if I could find a machine shop I trusted and could get er done in fair time.

Lets say I have a block.
How much should the machine work cost?
How much for (from some one who actually has this stuff in stock?)
girdle, rods, pistons, studs, springs, push rods....anything else?

Lets say I want to buy a built block, no real performace parts just the stuff to keep it together like listed above. Who has these?

1994 F-700 Cummins 5.9 12v and Arbortech chip body

1999 International 4900 DT466E w/Allison auto, flatbed 60' rear mount altec am855 boom.

2001 F-350 7.3 4x4 reg cab, single shots, BTS trans,
35" toyo mt's on black 18" KMC addicts

2006 F-350 6.0 4x4 cc lariat, 20" stock wheels with toyo at's....waiting for studs and all that.

Re: cost for a built motor

I would contact a site sponsor. They may be able to give you a package deal.
I know DI has all or most of the stuff your looking for. The machine work is going to vary depending on which machine shop you go to.

2001 F250, CCSB, 4X4, Auto, Forged rods
Lots of go fast parts and still slow.

2001 F250, STD cab, 2WD

Re: cost for a built motor

Last winter I had thought about building an engine just for fun then selling it to someone. When My cost estimate got to about $25,000.00(and I wasn't done yet), I decided a buyer would be too hard to find.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
