Default Engine prices

Although I have the liberty to choose whatever engines I want over the years but I think NR based engines and its deritives are getting out of reach. Everybody has to make a living but when u pass on a semi finished product which then re-process and select the best batch there are additional fees involved and this is why these modify engines are getting so expensive. I did a little experiment myself and start using other brands other than NR with success. But i have to confess that NR has one of the most stable distribution system all over the world that racers can have a steady supply of parts relative to other brands. With the introduction of other manufacturers I hope we can go back to more sensible pricing and reasonable product life cycle.
