My thought has always been if you are going to spend the money to get forged internals you might as well add the cost of the block in as well. The cost difference is not that much (depending on how much machine work costs, and compared to other things you could do), and you will get a modest boost in power.

hey txz28, Im actually going to use my ls1 block and stroke it to a 383 forged of course I have called so many shops around and pretty much depending on how much you are wanting to spend you are looking at $1200 take out and put back in (RR) your engine, $1000-$1500 to hone your block, $1500-$3600 on your stroker kit eagle, callies, lunati etc and depending on the shop $1000 - $2500 labor and also depending on the shop some will charge you min. to no labor if you have the heads, cam and anything else that you will be upgrading while you have everything apart.. You will save alot of money if you do it yourself...

that was my plan not only to save money but to learn more about it and to have a lil more pride you know anyone can pay and have a car built but not many can say they did everything but the machine work you know thanks for the numbers. I was talkin with my dad the other night about it and he reminded me that we have a family friend that builds motors for a living so I might be able to get the hook up on the machine work!!! I SURE HOPE SO lol i'm a poor ass white boy lol

The best all around deal that I have found on a rotating assembly is Compstar. Callies crank and rods, Mahle pistons (3.905 bore) w/rings, ARP 2000 rod bolts, balanced and ready for install for about $2400. This will more than likey be the route that I go. I have heard way too many bad things about Eagle cranks breaking.

Yea eagle is not where you want to go.
For damn sure you wouldnt want a scat crank either.
