Yup. The question now is:
1.) Find myself a take-out $100 crank and a set of Pro-LS, or whatever brand is available pistons (in the appropriate diameter).
2.) Spend $1700+ on a 408 rotating assembly, assuming it's available. I did ask the guy there and he said he thought it was more like $2500 "now". Thank you Mr. useless President!
Question to myself now is: do I really "need" a 408? I'm thinking it's kind of overkill for anything I'd drop it in (Cherokee JK, GM truck or SUV 1500/2500/3500?)... I'm not really into r-a-c-y stuff.
And I'm still upset about my property appraisal protest being denied, so there's that....$#@*!?
I'm going to start cussing here in Spanish (with English mixed in there too!) now....
They are brutal with these appraisals. Can't get the voters to approve tax increases so they just jack up the appraisals. I don't know how anyone could afford these prices now. Mine is over twice what I paid for it.
