    How much would a rebuild usually run you guys and what does it involve... this shop that will do it, will do it for about 2400.. but thats reaplcing almost everything including bore out and head work... etc. And would take about 2 weeks.

    For that much cash, why not just buy a brand new GM crate motor? For $2400, you could get a pretty killer crate eninge. Just my $.02, but I would put the $$$ towards a spicier motor [​IMG][​IMG] Good Luck

    What do you need the motor for? The ZZ4 is kinda of a car motor, 'cause it needs to be wound up tight. What numbers you trying to hit, HP, torquw, etc. I like building 'em, cause you get more control of what output you're going to get.

    ZZ4 about 3300.00 &amp; the 330 horse is less than three grand.
    Your lookin at some smog issues maybe. Buy a vortec core
    from your local dealer. The core charge is 100.00. Then re-
    build that &amp; put the GM vortec tbi intake on. Thats my overall
    plan. Maybe even I'll stroke it. If you can get your hands on
    a vortec core, its a score cause it has roller cam &amp; lifters
    and so forth...-Jim

    Hey man, check out this link for <a target="_blank" href=http://www.badasscars.com/chevsb.html>Bass Ass Engines</a>. It was in another post earlier. Take a look. For $2500 you can get a 383...I saw that and now I want one. I think GM wants like close to $4000 for there 383...This seems like a smokin' deal to me [​IMG]
