Not looking to "save money" on my 496.  My combination should get me close to 700 HP/tq naturally.  Can't freakin wait to hear it roar

Was OP talking about a budget build or not?  Seems he was talking about comparing apples to oranges. Full LS build vs what it replaced...not full build. Take me for example. Just the heads on my truck plus having Tony Mamo touch them cost more than what ya'll are saying the whole build cost. Did I really need them, probably not. But that's just what I wanted. I do know it better run like a mofo when I start leanin on it. I should have it back really soon so I'll throw up some videos.

I didn't want to do an LS strictly because the truck came with a BB. Any other truck, I would have done LS. And besides, my wagon has an LSA already, don't need to flood the garage with only the trendy stuff.

Originally the post was about building a BBC vs replacing with a yard LS.  To me that is ridiculous.  I was talking about a 454ss , and replacing the BBC with the assembled LS.   I am building what I think is a pretty stout combination for my skill level.  I Guess I am just curious why some folks take a vehicle that is known for a BBC and convert to LS, just because it's cheap?
I just wanted to start a interesting conversation.  I'd be happy to put an LS3 swap in a v6 chevelle build.  But an original BBC car should stay BBC....
