im thinking it might be worth the extra $$ to get something with a little more power to start out with. that think only has about 250hp, and that doesnt seem like much for a 351

Actually that'd be a good start, get that then put som AFR 185's, Canfield 192's, TFS....a better head of some sort, and swap in a roller cam since that block is roller compatible and you'd be off and running with a good little street engine with plenty of powerfor around $4,500 if you swap the cam/heads yourself

If he was just gonna turn around and do a head/cam swap, why not just start out with a shortblock with forged internals for the same money?

If you can get a better setup for the same price then that'd be the way to go. Better internals leave a lot of room to grow. But even a stock 351 crank is plenty strong, and lighter too. Just depends on what you wanna do

A shop in my hometown. I had to drive to Dallas to get the block myself, just a used 351w standard bore. It took a total of about 6 months, the old guy likes to take his time and only works on the high-power motors at night and on the weekends and cars and stuff during the week.

Ported and polished 351w heads for now. Theyhave bigger valves cut into them and stuff, but I wanna swap them for something else as soon as possible.

AFR 185's or Canfield 192's would work really well on a 408. Or you could go the more pricey Clevor route and get a set of 2v or 3v CHI heads and manifold

The top end parts are what make the hp and cost all the money..No point in building a stroker and choking it to death.
