    Default What would you expect to pay..496 shortblock

    I dunno ... I think I've lost it. It may be time to part with the old suburban and try to build a real motor. Just trying to get a ballpark. I'm hoping to use my brodix bb2plus heads and my vic jr carb. Seems like last time I priced a rotating assy it was 2200.00 (eagle). I hoping for 700 plus hp on pump gas if thats possible.(on a budget)

    srp pistons = 600
    eagle rods = 400/450
    eagle crank = cast or forged 250-1000 depending on what you want.

    Great combo. My brother did one and it made 710 with 10.2/1 compression
