    Well, the boltholes in my block are stripped, I got a price of $250 to repair the threads so I am thinking of just buying a bare block and swapping the internals. The annoying thing is that this is a brand new build, all new gaskets, rings, seals, pr3 pistons... no scoring on the bores or anything... I bought this block without checking the damn threads so a warning to all others. Oh yeah, I cant return the arp bolts so I really dont want to retapp to a larger thread, buy new bolts and drill out the head (that would probably be more expensive as well)


    Oh yeah, any other ideas? I cant figure out how to helicoil it because the threads are recessed
