    OUCH! Damn I feel for you. Sounds like an opportunity to put forged internals into your stock block. Assuming it's ok. Get that cam you wanted and CNC port those heads. You'll have to run the numbers and see which is the less expensive route to go. If the block is good I don't think I'd give it up to a core exchange.

    Hmm thats not good, Got pics? anywho, You need too take a good look at your block and the chances are your gonna have to replace it if u threw a rod but you might luck out.
    Dont look at it as a bad thing but a investment in the making...
