Well, i have not gotten anything yet, i am still researching on what i want to get if not a 5.0..... but how much more am i likely to spend if i get a ford racing short block for $1400 and a good 5.0 chasis&body for 4000. my plan is 300rwhp, beefed up a/t, carburated, no a/c, street legal and reliable car. (all N/A) i like to put a new engine and a/t in there for piece of mind. the reason i ask is b/c I like to have a V8 for once, and i cant afford a new GT. basicly is this project im working on going to be over $24000???
