Starting from scratch
pistons-speed pro hyperutectic 12.5-1- 160
rebuilt stock rods with good bolts - 100
crank- 100 re ground stock gm crank
heads- 400 2.02 1.6 valves any casting at JR motorsports
rocker arms, pushrods, valve covers-around 100 at jr motorsports
cam-jr number whatver with lifters -129 i think
intake, just go to a junkyard and get a 4bbl intake, cheap
timing chain-20 bux
're ring kit-89.99
this is assuming you have the block, and timing cover, use a stock oil pan.

as far as the carb goes i would get one from kinetic performance.

If you plan on spinning and revs, I wouldn't use a stock rebuild bottom end. Standard cast pistons WILL throw up all over the track around 5500 or so. The Speed Pro hypers are good insurance for little $$. ARP bolts in stock rods will make sure it stays together up to 6500 or so.

wallydog has it, thats what Ive ran for years.

but I started upgrading to aftermarket rods for 160 and crank for 160.

thats only 120 more than he has listed and well worth it, I would also go for a balance job on it all. and new balancer 50.00 for a new 283 type.

I get my parts from competition products.

In my opinion a stock bottom end is fine if you cant spend the big $$$. I have a motor in my street stock that has the same pistons, rods,cam, crank, heads, and block as it did in 1979 when it came off the showroom floor. Only honed, re-ringed and new bearings. Is it fast, not really, but I have won with it and it has been running strong for about 20 races now. I would definitely upgrade if you can but we have a $300 claimer so why spend $5,000 to give it away for $300. I would be happy if someone gave me $300 for my motor!!!!

youd be suprised and how much money some people spend on a motor, to only get beat by the 1000 dollar combo i mentioned... its a simple strong bottome end good for about 7200 and 6800 weekly, makes good reliable power...
my b mod motor i am building is all out, but the other one i am doing is the 1000 dollar one and i expect the 1000 dollar one will be faster
