Why is it that engine builders, in general, seem to be building 480 horse 460s, putting em on eBay, and asking $4000-$6000? Couldn't more power be acheived with less cost involved? Stroker kits aren't that much. Am I missing something?

frpp 550 horse crate motor and they have a 500 model to, both 460ci!

for around $6000, build it yourself and yes it would be cheaper!
