If you've kept up with my build thread you've seen I now have a bare 454 block. I haven't been looking really hard just checking jegs and summit and a couple other sites on prices for parts and well..... The only things getting re-used are the block and heads (which both are gonna get some work done) but everything else is gonna have to be new. I also checked prices on a crate 454 and they were looking like in the area of 5500-6000 or more. The crate would be easier for the most part but I also wanted to do the rebuild as a learning experience. If the price between the crate or rebuild is close I'd rather just build it but if I can really save THAT much going with a crate motor that's something I'd have to consider. Any thoughts/suggestions?
