Default pi swap accessories

http://www.modulardepot.com/product_...roducts_id=265

is that all i would need to buy to complete a PI swap(both intake and heads), or would i need anything else? I asked Randy from modulardepot and he said that with gaskets, bolts, o rings, and tubes it comes out to $525 plus shipping, I couldn't think it is that much for just bolts, gaskets, o rings, and tubes, that would be outrageous.

you can buy a head chanding kit that includes head gasket bolts and exhaust gasket for $120 and intake gasket and timing cover gaskets for like $80 and depending if you get heads that swap directly romeo vs. winsor you might have to buy more.

The link you posted is just the basic head changing kit...when doing a pi swap you need a bunch of other misc parts such as heater tube/nipple and gaskets etc etc.

im just paying $300 for the heads and intake, but i know that's the basic head changing kit for $100 so all else i would need is just like the heater hose, water nipple, and a few misc. gaskets and thats it? that doesn't add up to 525 i would believe

true i am in the middle of swaping my heads now and i kinda wish that i just swaped in a new motor, but then i wouldnt of acheved higher compresion. so far i have spent about 400 dallars on extra parts. not including main parts. i have bought head, intake, valve and timing cover gaskets. head bolts ,water tube, water pump nipple, extra valve cover bolts and diffrent timing cover bolts (because i am using romeo heads swaping out my my winsors) i think that i included everything.
