Turn-Key Components

I've never put together a 'turn-key' engine, so I'm not sure what additional items I'd need. ie: ignition, etc. for this to be considering 'turn-key'

this is what I've got so far:
Block: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...7&autoview=sku $679.60

Camshaft: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...5&autoview=sku $109.95

Heads: http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...tegoryId=78237 200k Intake $999.99

Water Pump: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...rchType=Engine $89.95

Ignition: ???

Rotating Assembly: http://www.speedomotive.com/383%20AL...RANK%20KIT.htm (64cc) $1575.00

Push Rods: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp $109.39

Fuel Delivery Kit: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp $215.88

Oil Pan: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp $28.88

Valve Covers: http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=egnsearch.asp $50.95

Total: ~$ 3,860

thanks.

From the looks of it, you'd be better off buyin' one of those GM Goodwrench performance crate engines.

Buying and assemblying an engine like that is very very expensive. There are lots and lots of little things you need. You still need alternator, distributor, carb or efi, radiator, thermostat, bolts and studs,oil pump, gaskets and more

You should look into buying a 350 motor and then replacing internals and such. The block your looking at is cast anyways, so just buy a stock 350 block. They can be had for around $100

Or buy a crate engine, i hope you got deep pockets

IF you buy a junkyard block then your gonna have $750 dollars in the thng anyway so why not buy it from summit? I see nothing wrong with what your doing here. If you have the money to spend for the forged internals means you'll get more relaiblity and you just might get enough to make two or three more builds using the same stuff.
