IF - we don't run into any odd problems (like hydraulic lock after shutdown or having to add an oil control rings) then the extra $'s to convert to inverted is going to be minimal compared to an upright version. By minimal I'm thinking <$500 for a purchased kit for DIY conversion of a stock engine to inverted. The rest of the conversion should be comparable in cost to an upright.but the price for that is still unknown.
Of course the engine mount, ducting, and addition of a dry sump tank will be different.
Purpose built heads? $$??.......if they ever exist. Right now just a classic example of Vaporware.
Motivational? More so for me than I had expected. Not a good thing for my overall productivity.
