430 hp out of the box? (wow). Where is that, can I find a 5.2 that puts out 320?

yes 430 would be nice its actually pushing around 370 and around 405 of torque they claim. A new crate engine would be nice but I have to think about the cost as you say they are around 5800 where as this rebuild im looking at is around 1800

I've looked into doing a custom build just not sure if I want to do it all the rebuilds I've been looking at have more hp and torque then the old engine but there also basically a bolt in engine so I won't have to change anything. Now if I could just figure out my trucks gear situation I'd be in good shape
