    I'm looking for a good dependable company that can build a strong 383 stroker, 350 or a 400 for my 85 K5, fairly reasonably priced. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Somewhere in Colorado would be nice but not necessary.

    Either a GM crate engine or checkout " www.speedomotive.com". They build one [censored] of a motor!

    I don't know if you'll like the prices, but these engines make me drool. Try www.beckracingengines.com

    While they aren't super high performance, they are upgraded stock motor... I know my 350 short block assembled and warrientied was abouty $600 (no core needed)... could get a really great 400 or even 454 botom and add some good cylinder heads and still have money left over when comparing to other places... check out Nationwide
