Labour: Dismantle & inspect V6 short motor (was given a short block with pistons,rods and oil pump only). Remove crank pulley off crankshaft. Inspect oiling system for modifications. Measure block & crankshaft. Wash parts. Prep for machine shop.$390.00 Machine shop: Acid bath block. Sonic test block. Rough cut bore cylinders. Crack test & polish crankshaft. (will this remove the nitride coating?)$554.40 Apparently it's a rough cut and hasn't even been properly bored and honed. I asked if it had been torque-plate bored and was told it gets torque-plate honed. WTF? I think this guy is trying it on big time, and I can't believe his prices. Anyone care to comment?
