I bought my 383/465 HP engine from AR Racing for $2995!!

My expectations of the engine weren't all that high considering the low price. If I would have bought all the components and assembled the engine myself - I would have spent more than that.. The engine features Dart Iron Eagle Heads (with 215cc intake runners), Lunati Roller Rockers, solid cam with .540 lift and 248 degrees .050 duration, Speedpro Pistons, a steel crank and a Performer RPM Intake.. The engine was complete from intake to oil pan (excluding carb, water pump, fuel pump)
The only thing that I did to the engine was replacing the Intake with a portet and matched single plane intake (extra HP)...
So far - I put 8000 street miles and approx. 50 drag strip passes on the engine and the engine still runs like when I bought it.. I haven't even adjusted the rocker arms so far...

They are selling a lot of engines through Ebay.. but you can buy directly from them too.. Here's a listing of their current engines:
