Except that engine building (properly) is a labor intensive industry.  Who do you think does all the measuring and machining?  Little engine shop fairies?  Not to mention assembly, mock up and parts fitting.

At Woody's level you are not just paying for his labor but for his skill set as well.

Thanks FordStrokers 408W, Westminster Performance Transmission (W.P.T.) transmissions, TCS Performance converters, Broader Performance valvebodies and last but not least a BIG thanks (always) to my friends here and abroad in the World!

I'm not really a professional at anything cause im only 21, but currently i'm doing several things with my life.

1) I work Loss Prevention at a local electronics store (Fry's Electronics)

2) I work Security For IBM

3) I am currently going to mechanics classes at my local community college to learn more about my hobby, and hopefully make it my career.

Well, this may be a first.  I am a child psychologist.  Started college in pre-engineering but hated math, so switched to psych.  The cars are my therapy.  I've road raced Mustangs for over 30 years in SCCA.  I do almost all my own fabrication and assembly, including engines and rear ends.  I've built 289 hipo, Boss 302, A4 block with C302 heads, and R302 block with Yates heads.  Richard Bridgette, Huntersville, NC.
