I am getting ready to pull my engine while my car is painted. I need a rebuild so I'm looking for suggestions. I currently have a 351W .040 over with forged pistons, an Edlebrock torker II, a Holley 750 double pumper, and World Products heads(iron). I 'd like to build a 408 I think. At first I'll use the same heads to save some money. I'd like to use a hydraulic roller. I talked to someone today who was going to use a Scat rotating assembly with I-beam rods which they said would be around $2500. Then another $2500 for everything else and dyno. I don't want to go cheap but that seems high. I'd also have to find a block most likely. I can buy a CHP 408 short block for $2800. Any suggestions or comments?
