To save money you can either sell your shortblock minus the accessories, oil pan and covers. Sell your head as well. Some sponsors buy shortblocks that are still good.

You can then order a stroker motor from Livernois or AES they are in Illinois.
Or from TSP (Texas Speed ). Check their websites and give them a call.
Good to know, thanks.

HAHA....resurrected!!!

You should be able to get somewhere in that range with that budget. You actually aren't far from a supercharger, but I get this is about NA power.

I know a guy in my area with the NF cam, ported heads, headers etc as well of course and he put down 520rwhp at Lethal.

Of course these are just numbers on a dyno, but if that is your goal it is very doable.

Sweet! I want N/A because I want to do Auto X. I also am on a budget and realize that If i N/A build, then save and upgrade drive line, I can supercharge later.
Build list so far (missing the little stuff like gaskets, sending unit for pump, etc)
zl1 pump
cnc ported heads
night fury cam
under drive pulley
kooks 1 7/8 LT
LS7 Clutch
(what kind of rockers/lifters should i get?)
exhaust cutout

Already have:
CAI roto fab, Flow master american thunder up to cats.

Also wanted to run this by you guys and girls... I have perminate disable vet plates so no DEQ for me... I am thinking of eliminating my CATS and just putting in a exhaust cutout. I'm just wondering if i have my cutout closed is it going to be obvious if a cop is sitting next to me at a red light? I heard there is a smell that non-cat vehicles usually give off.

I'll say that youll gain some sound without the cats, but it depends how loud your crapmaster already is. My NPP with the flaps closed is not loud at all and would not hesitate to remove the cats for more sound. But I like it the way it is. Catless smells and I had that smell for 7 years in my 98 SS. I didnt really care, but chix do lol

TVS 2300, Whipple 2.9 or ECS kit. Boom done with way more driveability and reliability than a heads/cam 500RWHP NA car.

I'm thinking it will be out of my budget with a charger though... Dont the TVS and Whipple 2.9's cost about 6K+ and average about 2K in labor at 100/hr?
