LSX vs Big Block

Well my boss is huge old school big block guy and I can't make a convincing enough argument as to why the LSX family of motors are better.

He put out a hypothetical budget of $12k to build an all out LS and all out big block. He says he could have 750-800 NA hp no problem out of an over 500ci big block. Now I've never researched building an LSX engine, but is that same power even possible out of a naturally aspirated LS given a budget of $12k?
