pro built engine cost

I know I will very a lot, just looking for some guestimates here. How much does it cost to have a professional builder put an engine together, break in and tune on dyno?

Really does depend on what you want and what you start with. I built my first 429 for around 3000$ it had new crank, pistons,cam. the bores were machined and the heads were Re-done. A buddy just did pretty much the same to his 429 for about 3500$. Neither of the engines were broke in or dyno tuned by the builder though. and neither were really "high" performance as far as these engines go.

They said it couldn't be done.......

So I didn't do it.
