Of course it can be done for less than 17K, considering ~8K of that is ARP hardware, breather system, plug wires, installation, tuning, Belanger upgrade, custom cam, pushrod upgrade and SCT device. Do it with used standard parts, and its much less.
But seeing as we don't sell used parts kits or half-complete packages, its a tad tough to price it much lower
I do not think its fair to compare price points of a complete, installed, tuned package which has been properly engineered to a used-parts-deal gathered package with adapters and more standard part selection. There are always cheaper options- ours just doesn't happen to use any of them by choice.
Good luck in any case, but I fear you guys are going to find out its not as easy as you think it is to make everything fit and work correctly without looking cobbled together or causing potential problems. If power is all you are after at any cost, there are much easier ways to solve that.
