500hp and cheap don't live in the same existence when it comes to these trucks. A big block build, in any configuration coming close to those numbers is going to cost. Not a cheap motor to build in the first place, then add the expense of engine management, fuel injection, cooling upgrades, making it fit, etc, youre looking at a pricey proposition. Building the stroker, same issues are there, build costs, fuel and engine management etc....
In the long run it'd be easier and probably cheaper to find a modern Hemi setup and go that route. A bone stock Hemi isn't far off from your production goals.
