    A short block is called a short block because it only comes with the engine block (block casting, pistons, rods, crank, etc.)

    A long block would consist of a short block with cylinder heads, camshaft and complete valvetrain. Rarely they might come with items like a crank pulley, timing set, water pump, valve covers, and other various items.

    LS6 with the right oil pan is a drop in with no mods, you can use your oil pan and pick up everything else will bolt up perfectly

    well ive narrowed it to the LS1 383, 402/408, and the 402 LS2
    as for options. Texas Speed offers a couple different combos and will even custom order and what not....

    goals 400-450 rwhp

    400-450 can easily be done with a H/C/I LS1 (stock bottom end)...look at my sig. I think TOTAL, I paid less for the parts for the H/C/I than I did for my Moser 9" rear.

    Agreed. A lot of people like the TSP 228R with a 112 LSA for their DD.

    You have to remember though, Basham will not be installing this himself most likely, and that is where he is going to run into dropping some major coin; in labor cost.

    I don't know what the labor is for a cam, but the cost for a custom grind cam is only like 350-400. A decent set of heads would not be that expensive either. Now if you want to get into something like AFR, then that's out of the question.

    I think his point was maybe looking at getting a cheap, used LS1 and just swapping cams in it.
