Cheap would be about $3000.00.A person could spend up to $20,000.00 and still not have the fastest beast.I know this,I've been selling parts and building engines for fifteen years.Save your money lad, you have a long way to go!

You could start by getting two or three jobs. There's tons of aftermarket hotrod stuff for a 350. You'll need to buy about all of it.

Stock bottom end, vortec heads, air gap intake, hedders, 750 Holley. That is about as cheap as power gets.

I'd say it depends on what or even if you have been driving. A stock 350 will scare your socks off if you just drop it in your pickup and head off down the nearest 2 lane road. You'll be going so-o-o-o-o-o fast. Then the poor old front end will start to shimmy and shake so hard your sweat slippery hands will barely be able to hang on the wheel. After you've had enough of this rush it will be time to hit the 40 year old brakes. That truck will be every where except in the lane you need to be in and the semi coming at you is gonna be really, really big.

Once you do get stopped and can't stop grinning like you are a crazy boy, welcome to our world.

Going fast is a terrific rush, but there's more to it than just a Chevrolet money pit under the hood. When I was your age there were jobs at service stations to give a guy a head start. My boss lined me onto a junk 40 ford coupe and a wrecked Cadillac. Then he kept me about a week behind in pay just to keep up with the swap parts cost. Man. What a first Highway 101 run at 2 in the morning that was.


Now you may have to start in a machine shop or garage sweeping up until you prove yourself enough to get a little experience. Then the fun will really begin.


Enjoy.
