ok. is possible to mess angle with that kits? or those align plates are workong fine?

You can always mess up. If you are not sure and you sound like you are really uncertain of your own skills, just bring the damn block to a shop. Will probably cost less than you expect.

its not about cost, but block needs to be bare, without internals, when sending to a shop?

At this point...I'm thinking about running one of the ARP kits from that come with the 9mm studs on the corners so that I don't have the machine the block. It's got to be better than the oem head bolts....and if I'm only making around 600hp, I don't see why that wouldn't be fine....
