I'm sorry nos but I don't get what you mean by "if you were to build a 212 like this with some of the improved parts today you could easily make a little more than double the power for triple the cost" so to get double the power if have to put 1500$ into it triple the price

Newer cams and parts too.
Better stuff so its cheaper andd easier.
