Whether you rebuild or buy a crate motor, you really need to be careful. Crate motors are the easiest way to go and several machine shops will even build the engine they way you want. $1000 for a complete motor sounds like the local auto parts small block offer. I've heard some strange to nightmare stories about those and I'd be cautious on dropping the money for a piece of junk motor. Another option is assemble it yourself and find a great local machine shop that will do all the machining for your. I would ask some local hotrodders in your area.
