A friend of my GF's has a 454 block he said he'd sell me for what he got it for, $500. Good price or no? He's an engine machinist, and it's been hot tanked and checked for cracks. I'm not really loking for a BBC, I was wanting to build a 383 and asked what a prepped block would cost, when he threw this deal out there. What do you all think? I have no idea what a rebiuldable BBC block would cost. He still didn't give me a ballpark figure on what a prepped 383 SBC would cost, so if any of you have an idea, give it to me. Thanks.
