good luck on the build. shop around for a shop to send your motor to. i just got mine back from the rebuild shop and the end total was 1226.16. this was for a long block that included new cam, crank, lifters, pushrods, pistons, and having the heads rebuilt.
not a bad price i'd say. the two week wait was more than worth what i got for that price.
if you can i would recomend having a couple puzzle boxes for bolts. they work great since you can just poke a hole and stick the bolt in and label it.
i say this because im doing a very similar thing to what you doing and in the rebuilding process it is amazing how easy it is to loose track of which bolt goes where.
