I doubt very seriously that this is true.  Rebuilding a B power plant
is no more expensive than rebuilding any other 4-banger, and
considerably less than alternatives with more cylinders.  By the time
you are done with changes in mounts, driveshafts, suspension, cooling
and brakes (required for more powerful units) you will be well beyond
the costs of a rebuild.  If you simply want more power, say so.  But
be prepared to pay for it.
