Well I just finished my build, my car was pretty much bone stock for the first 7 years I had it, 169,000 miles and I bought heads, cam and intake , then my brother talked me into getting a shortblock and I'm glad I did because my pistons , rings bearings all were shot !

To do FI on that old of a engine u will most likely need new internals for this i recommend a stroker kit that comes with a forged parts also new heads and cams as well as LT headers other then that if u get a root style u won't need a new intake but if it's a centri get a new intake ,intake plenum, and throttle body

There is no "cheap" when it comes to adding that much HP.

Yes, I would too if I could afford a good aftermarket block and forged internals to go with it.

Depends on whether or not you could do the assembly yourself and whether or not you had to buy all of the top end too.
Probably 6 - 10K anyways.
