Default How much for an LS1 block?

I'm looking to do my first build. How much should I expect to spend and where should I buy it? I'm in Illinois.

thanks

Are you looking at a short block or a bare block? Check out texas speed. I've been verry happy with my short block from them.

I see them go for $500 or less sometimes. You should step it up and build an LS2.
