Why even spend the money if you'll be making AT THE MOST 400whp? Do you need a motor currently? The stock motor will be able to handle that as long as you get a quality tune. How many miles does it have? If you pull the motor for a short block, it would be dumb to NOT get the heads refreshed at the least. There are a LOT of hidden costs you will run into. I would skip the motor, and get everything else. Use the money you save from the motor for a 6 speed swap, your stock 5 speed would go before your stock engine anyways.
