Depends a lot on what kind of engine hoist you have too..

A badass one will make it a lot easier to get the engine out ,

Or just undo transmission and unbolt motor mounts , and lift it out

It's a lot easier when the engine is stock
Long tubes suck

I got long tubes. For mine id figure lift a little then unblot the headers. Its was a fun time trying to pull the tranny out without un bolting the passenger side, got smart and un bolted it for re install. it seems easier to un bolt the header drop the tranny then pull the motor (one day)

The cost of a forged short block depends on the brand/type of forged internals you want to use. First I would pick a realistic HP goal for the engine and then figure out what rotating assembly you'll need to support that power. If you're going to only run pump gas and throw a small supercharger or turbo on there, then the base line forged components will do. For that, I'd say it's going to cost you around $2,300 for the shortblock alone (with your block as a core). That would actually be a killer price too!

Hope this puts things into a better perspective for you!

I want to get to the 500rwhp goal. I was looking at the mmr 600 forged rotating assembly with a comp cams stage 4 with a vortech v3. This seems very probable to me. How much can the stock block handle?

You can make 500rwhp safely on a stock block, with the correct forged rotating assembly. The only issues you're going to have is cylinder head flow at this point. You'll need to heavily work over the stock PI heads or pick up a set of aftermarket castings. IMO, I would buy aftermarket castings because they have a lot more potential and the engine will need less boost to reach your 500rwhp goal!
