SBC 430 CI limited production?

Are any of you familiar with a SBC 430 CI that was produced about 8 years ago in limited production and was a (or was based on a) NASCAR engine? I'm looking at a car that I am told has one and am told they only produced 100 of them (in either short blocks or the full long block), possibly with the blocks being numbered,and I am trying to find specifics on it (build specs).
Thanks.

Are you speaking of the "ZZ430" Chevrolet crate engine??, which was a special addition crate engine of limited production numbers.

It was just a 430 horsepower rated 350 cubic inch SBC for sale to hotrodders, no ties to any NASCAR engine program. Hand assembled by GM on a short special assembly line and sold over-the-counter, never installed on a factory assembly line in a factory built car.

They were all serial numbered for authenticity. Not 430 cubes, just 430 HP and 430 produced.

Thanks for the reply. Could be, but it's been specifically described as a 430 CI SBC making about 500 HP and produced in limited production and also connected to NASCAR in some way and that they were made/offered around 8 years ago.

"nascar has a 360 cube limit"
Good point. I know they change it sometimes but in looking back to 2007, I'm seeing that at least in '08 and '09 it was 358.
I'll see if I can get casting numbers off the block because now I'm more curious in confirming what it is rather than anything else.

Sounds like you are dealing with a B.S. merchant...
