If you want it done right,you need to call Aric at Injected. He's somewhat local to you,and is a honest person that'll do a good job for you.Truth be told I am actually more nervous about the motor build than the 5-speed swap. All of the info I got from the tech article and the help I got from MadMikeyL I am confident that will come off without a hitch.
I brought the motor to the machine shop, and as I suspected I got burned from the first shop. I paid for block cleaning and decking, didn't get that, I paid for crank cleaning and polishing, didnt get that. So now all that has to be redone. All I can hope now is he didn't lie to me about the mains being good as far as a line hone is concerned, and hope he didn't lie to me about the bearings being able to stay std. size, especially considering I have already bought all the new bearing is std. size. So I brought the block, rotating assembly, and heads up for work, and got handed an estimate for 1600 bucks. Needless to say took me a minute to pick my jaw up off the floor, but so be it, pay for what you get I suppose. The other downside is he told me 4-5 weeks on the long side, and 2 weeks on the short side. So looks like I'm delayed again, hopefully I can still make Fun Ford here in Atlanta Labor Day weekend.
I would do the same thing as well. Its uncalled for that they bored it further than you asked and didnt tell you about it. Now you have .020 over pistons for a .030 over block!No engine advice but, you need to check your receipt form the 1st shop and possibly call BBB, and Chamber of Commerce
