I'm wrapping up a 5.0 build right now.
My machine work alone was $1K. Here's what I did:
Bore block .030
Check line bore (with new stud kit)
Check deck for square
Resize rods (with new rod bolts)
New cam bearings and freeze plugs
press on pistons
swage lifter bores (honing them is no longer done)
Turn crank and chamfer oil holes first.
Balance rotating assy.
I did my own assembly and provided the new rod bolts, but above price included new bearings.
Now on a stock build you could forego the balancing, swaging lifter bores, chamfering the oil holes on the crankshaft and save a few hundred.
But I would never skip the new rod bolts and resizing unless you get them checked real good. And if you do change the bolts, then you have to resize the rod.
