I have been given a ball park kind of figure, but wasn't able to expand on it during the phone conversation due to time.
Just to give you some parameters, I am talking small block engine, 50-60MM Core, Titanium valves, Jesel style rockers etc.
Would be interested to hear peoples thoughts, and about their experiences, this style of engine is relatively new to me

He has been more than helpful with explaining certain aspects of lobe design etc. Just trying to save some $$$ on long distance calls, and I am sure he has better things to do than sit on the phone with me for hours, lol
