The $10k budget will be stretched pretty hard depending on how much you already have. By the time you do proper block machining, and buy the stroker kit, there will be about half that in the shortblock with all supplementals. A flat tappet cam will save you about $500 or so. The top end with aluminum heads if you have them ported, intake, carb, and all of the extras will use up the rest of that budget pretty quick. I did a 552 a few years back, with used iron heads, and several other used items and I was pretty close to that budget. Cool

10.5: is a safe number for typical pump gas build, but sometimes you can go higher depending on the combo and how you build it.

PS no motor is maintence free.......

if you already have the 408 use it....... Your not going to build something new for less than what you already have !!!

If your starting from scratch its a different story.
