there is 2 ways to rebuild a engine, the cheap / wrong way and the costly / proper way.
if my memory serves me right usually just removing the ridge on the upper cyclinder, with cleaning the bores up usually = a engine that lasts less than 50k miles.
Now your talking about adding a turbo later, umm ya. Hold my beer and watch this comes to mind.
engines are a complex yet simple machine, they need proper tolerances and extreme cleanliness to live a long time. Start cutting corners and your shooting yourself in the foot.
Now if you want to get something running for a short period of time then sell it, cheap is the way to go.
'01 F250, 444ci of straight piped oil burning fun. 4x4, 6 spd, GTP38R noise maker, Stage 2 injektorz. Lotsa fun!
