    402/408 will be quite a bit cheaper.
    I think I have roughly $10K into my motor. Heads, intake, cam, shortblock, etc....

    I'd say 10 g's is a good guess. the 402/408 short block will be like 4 grand on its own. count on a solid 3 for the whole top end. it all depends on components. check out texas speed for engines. heres a link http://texas-speed.com/shop/categoryM.asp?MID=1&catid=3

    you could do it for less than 10k but that would take some serious talent. you might be able to find someone who started a project and then ran out of money. thats what i was going to try and do but i got impatient.

    It would cost me my left nut, but this seems like a popular set up. Seems like I read more about people ditching the LS1 for an LS3, LS7 or an LSx motor... Is the 402/408 an LSx motor?

    I certainly call mine an LSx.
    LQ9 block with LSx internals. All in the LSx family...



    Although, there is an LSx block...which is roughly $3K bare. That I don't have.

    I think the LSX block is down to 2000 bucks. Pretty sure I saw one for 1800 a few days ago.

    it depends on what internals you use. Ive seen stroker rotating assemblies for almost 4 grand themselves, not including the block. If you buy heads for 3k are you gonna have them ported out even further? Or just leave them as is? etc... I work with a guy that has a 30,000 dollar 418 stroker motor in a mustang. It all depends on what parts you use. Which supercharger are you talking about. An F3 Procharger is definitly gonna cost you some.

    LSX blocks were built with 6 head bolts per cylinder and it was desighned to handle 2,500 horses or you can live with like 1,000 hp on the street with dd capabilities

    Your not kidding, that trap speed is incredible though haha. One of the craziest runs I ever saw in person was a Termi SCREAMIN down the track, slams the breaks at the 1000ft mark and run like an 11.02 @ 132 or soemthing close the that...I was like WTF!!!
