And the boost is a good idea.. I might build the 400 with a procharger for my dads jimmy. He just has to pay a good buck to get the block off of me haha.
I dont think they are worth much? I would buy an after market block for 1500 before I would look for a 400 GM block.
re 450 horse turbo motor for 2k? Thats pretty cheap? Im guessing the cost of a good 300 hp 350 plus 7 pounds boost?

I had a feeling you were thinking Olds or Poncho.
