This....
My goal 500-550 streetable hp with good manners.
Takes a significant amount of fabbing. Costs are minimal if you can do the fabbing. If not then cost wise, much of what has already been presented. Go BB.

Nature will take care of the rest.

Sorry for late reply.
Cheap ebay ones. Figure they will get me over the startup hump and learning curve. Then upgrade as needed.

More specs! What engine work is done? Cam specs? I would like to know more.

Engine is basic run of the mill rebuild. Cast pistons all stock internals. Slight cam but don't know any specs.
Motor is the guinea pig for my learning curve for the EFI and turbo setup.
When I kill it. (Yes planning ahead lol) It will be replaced with a 5.9 with forged pistons and Eddy heads. Cam profile yet to be determined. Long slow road to go still. I am a machinist by trade. The fabrication is my journey.  With some awsome fringe benefits at the end.
