Yuriy,

F*ck that!!!

At the top of this page you'll find a banner for Golen Engine Service.

For $4000 you can have a complete 360HP long block.

For $2600 you can get a 383 LT1 short block....or a 350 shortblock!

If you have $4000 to spend, go with a known quantity!!!

Just my $.02
!

GREAT!!! Thanks for the info guys. :cool:

I'm still a newb at engine specs though. Whats the diff between long and short block? Will they both just bolt right in the our engine bay, or do I need to modify the engine mounts to make them fit?

What kind of ET's can I expect out of a Chevy 350ci / 360hp LT1 Long Block? :D

Man that a nice price too.... (now reconsidering that GTO or STI purchase)


Thanks again.

shortblock: block and rotating assy

longblock: short block with heads installed (no intake or TB)

complete engine: (take a guess
)

turnkey: complete engine with all the accessories, just "plug & play"

do you have 4000$ to put on an engine only? or is that to built a reliable setup? don't forget everything else you'll need when upgrading the engine (TC, exhaust, tuning, fuel pump, etc...)

good luck and let us know what you choose to do

Yuriy -

What is your goal?

If you need a replacement engine and are good with tools, get the short block and transfer everything from your old engine over.

In my case, I was looking for performance. I purchased the street 383 short block from Chad and sent him my heads from Llyod and a bunch of other stuff.

Chad put it all together and dynoed the motor.

This all costs money.

Chad is great to work with. I recommend taht you call him directly and tell him what you need. Another good thing with Golen is, you don't need a core!

BTW, the Golen advertisement banner above has a picture of a "long" block.

Good luck.
