The ATK 383 short block at about $2000 looks good but I'd like to have that with the pan, balancer and flex plate.
No idea where you're located, but there was a couple articles on a company named Demon, they're on the left coast. Cheap Big-Block Chevy Engine.

A while ago a member posted an article about a nice sounding deal from Coast High Performance, on a Chevrolet 406. These guys torque plate hone all their engines, I emailed them to confirm this.
