    Might wanna look into buying a shortblock.

    By the time you get crank,rods,piston,rings,machine work, and labor to install(unless you feel confident installing). You will be at the price of an assembled short block.

    I see it nickeling and diming you to death unless you do some well thought out research on what all you need.

    I was talking with Late Model Engines in Houston and they quoted me about 1500. 700 for the block alone and the rest was all the machine work and studs that I wanted (included ARP mains and checking the balance of the rotating assembly. Texas speed also sells one for about 700, along with a few of the GM part sites.

    Thanks guys. And i'll look into the shortblocks. Building and install will be done by myself and a couple others. I know a performance engine builder so if i'm stuck he knows what to do. And i will get stuck.
