You could go to eagle and have them make you a custom crank with a forged rod and piston combination. Maybe some cams and valve train. Tear the block down and have everything re-honed and decked. Have the heads ported and the valves done.

This will more than likely make the under hood of your car hell of expensive. I'd guesstimate about $4000 more expensive. And you don't even have to buy a dress. Unless you want to.

First I always hit it with a dremel to debur it and give me a good starting point then I use some medium grit sand paper and go down to really fine grit then some polishing compound and if you want the finish to last some Zoop seal.

Ill try and find the write up I usually use that has all the sand paper grits and different compounds.

Enthusiast has the right idea... but make sure you use Zoop seal to keep the finish.
