reco motor

im looking at getting a reco motor and i dont know which one to get. should i get a red 179, 186 or 202? whats the difference in power/efficiancy/reliability. i know that 186 have adjustable rockers, is this an advantage. i want a srong motor to build up.
whats a resonable price for a reco engine. whats a reputable reconditioner around sydney, theres a higginbottom near me are they any good?
would it be cheaper for me to get the block honed, cleaned and all that crap and get the head recod then do the rest myself, what would i need besides pistons, rings, seals, bearings and gaskets?

Be careful alot off these shops only use new parts if they have too.
Reco and fully reco are to different motors I have see to many people burnt.
If you want a strong motor put a V8 in, you are trying to move a big car with a small engine
