well if you have someone in the machineing buisness and allready have the block you should be able to get pretty close to 400hp with $2k if you are resourceful

The only machine shop around these parts that i trust has much much higher prices than the prices by NAIRB so i was accounting more for machining than what he listed.

okay look i'm going to make this easy and very proveable.. superchevy did an article back in october just for this.. and looky i have the mag right here.. 407hp for $1,155 and that included the block too

heres a list of parts
Pro Comp 190 heads $580
Professional Products Intake $129
Gaskets MRG-7100 $25
Comp Cam XR282HR $129
Summit Racing Pushrods 7.4" 29$

and they pulled junkyard 350 for $200.. however they said expect between -$100 and -$150 price difference if you shopped on ebay

so to answer your questions now... 1 nothing as long as cylinder walls are in good shape.. 2 listed.. 3 stock.. 4.. listed.. 5 they didn't list this because they had hundreds of carbs laying around and decided not to buy another.. but from personal experience.. i'm going to recommend something different.. go with a fast efi carb.. you will not regret it and if you do this you'll want to offer me sexual favors (of which i will decline) because the fast efi carb is the bomb

I noticed that too. It is pretty amazing that they got that much hp for that price though. My budget build was closer to $1800. and I'd estimate a real 325-350 hp.
