    Need new block..

    (Hope I posted in the correct section, sorry--I'm new)

    I have a 2000 LS1 5.7 liter-with sever damage to the pistons and block, I hoping nothing happened to the aluminum heads, as I’m not sure yet because it just happen yesterday a have not had a chance to take out motor and check for head damage. But what I’m doing at this point; is assuming that there is no head damage and looking to just replace the block (and for where price) with maybe a 383 stroker or a 6 liter to get more torque to the real wheels.

    My question is; where can I find a fully assembled engine block-only (stroker or 6 liter) preferable Aluminum, that will match up to my heads? Everywhere I checked, only has "create engines" which im assuming is the block, heads intake and all (turn key engine).

    I have a lot of money in the top of engine, racing cam, aluminum heads, Wieland intake and is set up for nitrous, so I don’t want to mess with any of that. I’m Just looking for the assembled block to slap on and figured I might as well, go for more displacement while I'm at it !!

    Thanks

    There are many places that will build you an awesome "shortblock". Thats what your looking/asking for. Keep checking around on who has what, from where. If your looking to go larger cubes, I wouldnt even think about 383. For almost the same price, can get a 402/408 and have that TQ your talking about with the HP. Check out HKE engines also. Have heard many good things about them.

    408 is pretty cost effective!
