I'm about to purchase a new short block BBC crate engine for my 1970 GTO but have never really done much research on the topic and want to make a good decision. Anyone have any suggestions or prior knowledge with buying a BBC short block that they would be willing to share? Thanks a lot guys, excited to get involved in this forum.
Well w/ the gas prices you can prolly get a stock 454 pull out for a few hundred bucks... I just picked one up for 300 intake to oil pan and it runs great. if you can get a pull out and build the bottom end (or not) you can spend about 3k and have a NASTY bitch!!
i am just looking for a short block b/c i already have a nice set of heads, edelbrock air gap intake and 750 holley carb. I think im going to go with a motor from a major distributor so that i can trust it and be confident in the quality of the motor. Anyone have any experience with BluePrint Engines? Looking at their 496 short block for 3,700.
