No check out B&G, they have a specific flash for a 408 stroked 360.

Yes they do and that's who I talked to as I was planning my upgrade. I've used them on other vehicles with great results.

Carnage - check your local Craigslist for engines. There are a couple listed in Phoenix for around 500 complete!

Sounds like you've got everything planned out. As for keeping it rust free after machining, we always sprayed hydraulic cylinders with a mist of hydraulic oil and wrap them in a plastic bag, should work the same for you. Another thing I've seen is hydraulic oil and a wax paper over the block's ports. oil prevents moisture penetrating and wax paper stops more moisture from getting in. When you're ready, just degrease it and you're ready to go.

I just looked up 360 engine core charges, they go from $300 to $500 at a local machine shop in Lakeside Calif.
they do engines for the tv show, pimp my ride, & several hot rodders & law enforcement entities, like the little known railroad cops that used to be known as Pinkertons

Hell yea thats cool man, I am going to talk to a cousin of my that does a lot of part transports for a junk yard, hopefully i can find something that is in decent condition. I probably will check out some machine shop close by, but the only thing is I don't have a core. The motor thats in my truck now is staying untill I get done with the 408 completely.

Does anybody know if there is any variation in the 360 blocks throughout the years or are they identicle and just the top end changed over the years?

Just wondering what you are going to do about the trans behind such a monster engine? We have heard stories about these trannies not holding up to factory stock 360, much less a 400hp 408.
