If you have the time, set a sertin amount to the side ever pay day, and once a week get something new. If you have then cash just start spending. Its dont waist the money on other stuff for the rig. make the motor your main consirn

Get yourself a base of what your total outcome will be. What #'s are you looking for horsepower and torque wise? Will you use it for street and strip or for pulling competitions? What truck are you going to put the motor in? Figure out where your going and you'll get there easier.

I'd buy that sucker in a heartbeat!! to truly build the motor you are looking at around atleast 15K for a good powerful motor that is built right!

Yeah that is at the very least! But the good part is you save about $4000 for the motor itself!
