Is this a new motor ? I am building a supercharged small block right now , I am doing all the assembly myself and am spending close to 7k in parts and machine work without considering the cost of the blower , carb or dizzy and wont be anywere near 1200 hp . I am always suspicious when the price is so low for so much HP
If this guy has a good repuatation then grab it fast.
