I think he's parting his truck out. Or @ least that's what I thought from his title.

How bad is your motor? Is anything reusable? 3K might get you an iron block LQ9. You won't get 500hp even if you're talking flywheel. Most people on here talk rear wheel hp which is lower. You lose roughly about 18% to 20% through an auto transmission.

I was actually leaning more towards iron block

Jeff,

I'd look for a cam'd LS2 someone has pulled to upgrade or a lowish mileage one and put a mildish cam (unless you plan on headers and everything else later on), valve springs, oil pump, PCM oil pan mod, home made cold air (already over budget btw)

Engine is gone? I hope you have the old engine for your accessories, intake and pan. Be aware about 24x and 58x vehicles while you are searching.

Not sure what you are looking for but there is no way that I know of to get a 500 hp LS motor for 3k. You would easily put 5 to 6k in such a motor especially since you don't even have a block. Sorry but don't want to mislead you. Hope something works out.
