Cheap Engineer in ACT?? or Dubbo area NSW?

as the title says, looking for the best price on putting a 400 in my LTD (as i may have one i can get, and put in as opposed to rebuilding the 351)
i am hoping for it not to cost too much, seeing as the only bloody difference is a bit more displacement, which makes it a bit wider and about 20lb's heavier,
anyway any help much appreciated :)

I have used Marloc Engineering in Queanbeyan.

ACT rego used to have a list of engineers that they recognise/recommend ACT residents use. not sure if they still do.

Have you spoken to them at all?

nope, but never mind, the guy wanted too much than i was willing to pay for the 400, (when i was also factoring in costs like engineering and such)

thanks anyway :)
