What would a good bottom end forged assembly cost me? not top of the line but moderatly good? And also, Is it safe to do that with stock top end w/ procharger?

yes it is safe you could get away with 1500 or so if you shop smart but depending on hop much hp u want look at non forged options but still stronger

if you want to do it on the cheap, you can do:

03/04 used cobra crank $250
03/04 used cobra rods $300
CP pistons $700

thats good to about 900HP or so. add a set of Billet I beam rods, and your capable of 1300HP.

but then you also have rings, headstuds, mainstuds, gaskets, machine work.

i want around 650-685 max..
power wise, or $$ wise? i sure hope its not $$ wise, because your not rebuilding your motor for that, its going to cost you more than that in machine work.

if you want to support 650-685HP then the cheapest, and one of the best ways to do it would be, 03/04 cobra crank, 03/04 rods, and manley pistons. your right under $1K, then you need rings, headstuds and main studs. and machine work of course.

+1 i see alot of people forgeting the studs and rings... its the little **** you forget about that bites you... you wouldnt want a bolt on you rod or something snapping off that would be a no go

You do know that with all that extra hp, ur gonna have to upgrade ur tranny and probably change ur rear end to a 31 spline.

Many people forget about all that until it goes south on em.
