Re: Need engine advice
Do you have a friend who can assemble a motor?
Do a little digging on the forums, ask questions and pick parts, you can build big hp (even though you don't need or really want it) for the budget your asking, you may as well get the most bang for your $$$, the speed bug will eventually hit you, and you and your friend can build up a motor in a few days and learn a ton. 383 would be the most realistic choice for most bang for you money, you can't really build a bbc for that, especially if it's a small block car, and a 400" small block is unrealistic with a 3k budget.
