Is $300.00 a good price for this 396 short block that hasn't been bored yet?

Thanks

Yeah its worth $300. A lot of peolpe are on the cubic inch kick, but my 396 is due from the engine shop this week with 414 cid. Everyone talks about the 383 small block but I believe I'll have something for them with my little big block.Solid roller cam, high compression W/ closed chamber heads we'll find out soon! I pretty much found out that you will need to stick with closed chamber heads for any compression with an off the shelf piston, and if you want to run an open chamber head you'll probably need to go to a custom piston to get any compression.keith Black does offer a piston for the 396 and a 4" stroke to get 434 cid. I've been wanting to try it.....................get some good arp main studs you'll be fine
