    Default 3.8 heads P&P Estimate?

    How much would a P&P job cost? I'd do it myself but yeah, things I think I can do and things I can do are well ........ distorted.

    yea and you get an underperforming engine that makes less power. Nobody in their right mind would P&P heads intakes for 400. You will have easily $200-300 just on the manifolds

    not to butt heads here, but rather to add to the mayhem.

    I got my 3.4 LIM and UIM p&P for 220$, at least, as well as they could be done. (try getting into the top of the UIM with any kind of tool!)

    and Forced Firebird more or less did the best iron head port job ever conceived by man for around 225$ per head and that included gasket match, p&p, bowl work, sand blasted, painted, assembled and shipped to my door!

    3.4 > 3.8
