Default Help with engine build

Here is the conundrum. I did an 11.5 @ 121 on stock internals. I don't want to worry about it anymore... SOOO, I need suggestions on a motor build. I don't want to spend 20k+. I have every piece of the puzzle except for a built motor. I have 100 overs, 12 mm stroker, built tranny and pretty much every other accompanying mod. Modded water pump, SoCal Dampner, Billet injector hold downs blah blah blah....

I was thinking at minimum, pistons, rods, AF Cam (not sure), Keyed Crank (callies), then obviously bearings, seals, machine work etc... I am running s475 over stock compounds. I'm open to suggestions, thanks guys.

Fingers, Carrillos, 6480AF, billet mains, main studs, head studs, valve springs, billet flywheel.

Optional stuff, ported heads, girdle, pushrods(highly reccomended), rocker studs.

I'll be honest. Just the build you listed out in the first post will most likely get you close to a 20k price.

You're going to be close to 20k to do it right. Half fill the block?

I dont think an AF can is worth it unless you are doing the crank too

Callies makes a stock spec replacement crank, using better aloys for under 2k now. Probably be good ods for the $. But rest is mostly required hardware to have any piece of mind.

Would it really be worth it to buy the stock spec crank? Haven't the stock style billet cranks broke as well? If going billet anyway I would want the piece of mind of the narrow journal crank.

you will be 15-20k into this engine. only way to save money is to become REALLY good friends with the major shops to get a little price break, then you do all the machine work and assembly.

just the short block with crank, cam, rods, pistons, machine work, bearings, seals, assembly, girdle (if you wanted it), main studs (if you wanted them), oil pump, billet main caps, and a few other things will put you in the 10-15k range right there depending on options. then throw in rebuilding the heads (which they will most likely need), top end gaskets, push rods, valve springs and any other up grades adds up quickly.

these engines can be built for less but it comes down to end HP goal. what you want is the 20k engine but not for 20k

Just get merchant pushrods. No need for rerod-strong ones. You do not need a billet flywheel.
