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.
