                            Damn, Thanks for making this thread, I have a "quarter time" job and only work 23 hours every two weeks.(still in high school) I have definitely fallen for the aftermarket overbuild and buy expensive parts trick that come from reading all the magazines and watching those highly unrealistic build shows. I have no money to waste on "good" parts and only have budgeted around 2000 dollars to build a 440 for my Duster. Thanks for the reality check.

                              That's gonna be difficult. Get ready to spend more......but not a LOT more if your core is in good shape. I just did a bare bones 400 build not long ago and 2000 was my goal budget. Ain't happenin and I had a pristine core. I'm at about 2800 and the engine is pretty much done from carburetor to oil pan. Still a really inexpensive big block.

                                Yeah, I know that i am going to overrun the budget a little bit, but I am thinking I have enough mopar sources around me that can help. I have three guys looking for an a-body bench seat for me just just because I mentioned the fact that the one I have is not for the car. Hell, one guy has a 550hp 73' cuda and a 1968 dart with a 572 Hemi just as cruisers. will it be tough? yes. Do-able? maybe. Thanks for the tips. (The 440 I am looking to buy is stock and fully assembled and supposedly has less than 100,000 miles on it.)

                                Why the 440 when a low deck will fit better and be less costly?

                                  Yes, a 383 would be great, but I can't find one for super cheap (still looking) that is complete enough to reuse some parts. like keeping the stock heads and just porting them, or just putting a new piston and arp bolts on a stock rod. it seems that they are just bare blocks, or fully assembled race motors. I can't find one in the middle. I will see what I can find in 4 months while saving enough money to build one, but the 440 is there and complete. plus the guy has all the parts to build it in his garage.

                                  Check the for sale ads daily in as many forums as you can, they pop up CHEAP all the time. I got one for 100 bucks last year

                                    Best way to find engines/parts is to get to know as many local Mopar guys as you can, and net work. A bud of a bud of a bud knows someone with such. Thats how we did it back before whats his name invented the net! Al somebody.

                                          There are more than a few GOOD sites in Facebook. I hate the institution but there are good site and people. Instead of hunting that part, hnt those people in your driving distance.
