Ok, I'm planning on putting together a mild small block chevy.
My main question is this.
I have a complete pan to intake Goodwrench engine that has sat outside for a few years and may or my not have a spun main bearing (it was given to me in this condition)
Given the fact that I'm having trouble finding a reputable machine shop locally, would I be coming out ahead having the block i have checked and machined and rebuild it myself, or should I just order one of the numerous short or long block assemblies available from various places?
Basically, is is possible to have a block inspected, machined for street/strip use and put into short block form for under say, $1500?

Maybe, but the crate engine that you buy will be about the same price....and one more important thing..............it comes with a warranty.
