read this artical from super chevy, budget build 454.. Building a 700 Horsepower 454 On a Budget - Super Chevy Magazine
now, what needs to be consisderd as not everyone can find a block for under $100 specialy bbc, but the more reserach you can do, and dont go over board with parts that are really not nessary meaning use a cast crank instead of forged, recondition stock rods instead of buying new if rods and stock crankshaft is good to use. go iron head 049 0r 781 casting are the better oem heads, or what what they used in this build if you like, just take the time to educate yourself a bit, it will save you, you can build a bbc for your budget..
