I'm not sure how much help this will be, but here goes.

First of all, you need a plan.

How much can you spend?

What parts (if any) do you already have?

It's easy to bench race and build motors with a keyboard (no grease under the nails that way) BUT, we can speculate all day and miss your goal entirely.

Don't select parts one at a time because you want to be able to tell your buddies you have a "Holley 750' on your 350...select your parts like you would select members of a band. Pick all the right ones and they perform EXCELLENT together...

You can go pretty far with reliability and power using massaged, cleaned up, and machined stock parts (crank, rods, heads, etc...) with a few aftermarket goodies thrown in....

For a benchmark, a 300 hp small block with close to 400 ft lbs of torque is fairly easy to do with a few aftermarket parts, and if you aren't hung up on having certain brands, you can certainly put the whole mess together reliably on a shoestring. Also, consider what this motor will be going in and how you are getting all this raw cheap power to the wheels...that will impact your budget.

SO, think about these points and some comments that I'm sure others will have and get back with us, OK?

Look forward to hearing what you come up with.
