Duncan that was a good read. These engines are not cheap to build. He offers a 400 short block which is really not what I wanted.

I don't think they are a whole lot more than any other engine when you compare apples to apples.
If you take any engine, whether a 302 or a 460 and start doing a complete build on it, it will be costly to do it correctly.

I agree the last 302 me and one of my sons built ran almost $2500.00 and that was using stock parts.

434 Stroker...there is a build thread here, it's not progressed as I want to be closer to having my truck done so it is not sitting.

I think $200 for a M/C6 is an OK price. I've bought and sold 351M's from free to $100 and C6's from $25-$150. Not knowing the condition would make them cores to me, and I'd probably top out at about $150, at that price, you can get a good chunk of your change back at the scrapper. It really depends on what your budget is...it's not overly expensive to get these engines to the 300hp/400tq level, which is more than enough for 95% of applications. My favorite cams to run in these engines are from the DEH (255 and 265) and XE (256 and 262) line ups from Comp. Get the whole kit (cam, double roller timing set, springs, locks, etc), get a set of iron Aussies ($400 bare), carb, intake, headers...and you'll be good to go. TMI has 400 cranks for $295...but if I were to go that far in, I'd go new pistons too...hypertectics for more mild builds, but the KB flat tops (TMI offers) are pretty sweet too (but with the aussies and flat tops, and all else being relatively mild, probably too much compression for street use and anything less than 93 octane).
