Default Hybrid cost(roughly)

So aside from intercooler piping, basically all of the turbo accessories... Let's talk about the conversion cost.

I'm coming up on 106k miles and everything seems to be running well. Oil consumption is good. But as we all know at some point I will be looking to change out those head gaskets. And looking for more horsepower.

I've read that doing a head job (which involves...?) will be beneficial if I'm to install a turbo setup using the ej253 heads on a 257 shorty. Now I'm just curious. What else should be considered while the engine is out? and what kind of pricing am I looking at before turbo accessories?

Tuning would most definitely need to be done by somebody else because I have done no research in open tunes. Headwork (which involves new springs and valves? I don't know what it consists of) would of course need to be shipped out. Is there any other major procedures that I've left out? I can do the parts changing of course but some things would be best left to the experts and far more experienced, though I wouldn't mind tackling a project as long as I have the tools.

Thank you for any tips and suggestions ^.^

Have you added up your costs yet? This **** is about to get confusing. First what kind of power do you want and what is the car used for? Then assuming this is a brand new short block for the power you are making do you need any forged internals? Cost of getting the heads machined. (mine was 500$) Then getting your valve seats lapped and getting new valve train if you really need it. Then it gets simpler every new gasket you can get replace. add your costs of fluids. spark plugs, do you want an aftermarket oil pickup, timing belt kit, oil pump, water pump, bigger turbo means bigger injectors means fuel pump. connect the dots and imagine spending close to 5000$

building a hybrid motor will cost you same as building a normal motor.

anywhere from $2000-$10,000 depending on your goals.
