    So ive been looking for a C4. Local guy says he can do a 302 and C4 rebuild for 3K$. This is outside my budget. Am I being unrealistic is my expectations? I t $3K a reasonable price point?

    More info please. Are you saying you can get both engine & trans rebuilt for $3K?

    If he's removing & installing, that's a helluva deal.

    What’s a “rebuild”, new gaskets & some spray paint?
    IMHO beware of a “good deal”!

    If it is a full rebuild on both then that is a great price.

    have you seen any of his work?
    even at 30 over you are talking boring block, new pistons and rings.
    get a list of what he is going to do for 3K...:yup:
