I think its really important to set a goal when building. The 20K is just your budget and should not be goal. I would recommend an IAG built block for any type of build nowadays. When doing builds likes this, i would recommend having 1 shop remove, assembly, install, and tune the car. Less finger pointing down the road.

There is also a thread on here call "how much did you spend". It will give you an idea as to how much some guys have spent on their builds.

I have an 11 pretty much maxed out on stock turbo E85. If things take a turn for the worse with motor at any point, I would do an IAG block. They seem highly recommended in recent years, have different stage blocks good reliability and my shop uses them a lot. I would do a IAG street block , Dom 1.5, TMIC, bigger injectors and clutch on E85 or flex set up and probably be around $10k-12k.

Trust isn't the issue. It's what happens when it all goes wrong - and too many do. Going with a pre-built block will help, but responsibility should be a significant issue if you are paying for labor anyway.

How much did you spend

My fully supported rebuild without e85 cost this in legitimately (easily compared) priced parts, and it should certainly be one option at under $20K. You'd might have room to try to squeeze a decent suspension in there too which is something I wouldn't do without. This would be dependent on your choice of other parts.

$20k goes far faster than most expect. Still it is a great budget you can stay under for a really nice "moderate" re-built + built engine even if you aren't doing the work. It could easily get you to the high end of moderate depending on your choices, priorities and availability of e85.. But attempting the highest power per $ isn't always the best choice. Not that it matters, but my mental budget when I started was under $15k. I spent more and could easily have added another $10k to get my "dream engine" which hasn't changed that much since.

IAG

I never mind spending money on my car since I drive it everyday and driving is therapeutic to me. It's money I would have to spend on a psychiatrist and medication otherwise
