600 all motor is going to be more than a stock bottom end build so it doesnt matter what you buy, you just need a crank and block lol

its possible to get more like 550ís hp. Good head and cam, typically 450-475 whp give or take. Bore it out to make it closer to a ls3 and use ls3 heads top end, with decent compression you can get closer to 500 whp in a manual trans, 475-480 auto most likely but thats a radical motor. Very hot street deal

408-416 stroker is the best way to make 600+
