If you can build a 450-500 hp Chev for $7-8k let me know how you did it, and I'll do the same. One thing is for sure you would have to assemble it yourself and get your parts cheap. The build up above is nearly 10 years old now and quotes US prices, so your budget will be the biggest challenge there. Convert that to AUD, and today's money and in reality I think you'd struggle to build that for $15k with machining and parts labour etc. No problem making that power as there has been a gazillion build ups on SBC's over the years, you only need to ask your friend google. Unfortunately out hobby ain't cheap

It doesn't matter what you buy you will spend twice as much as you wanted too and something will go wrong as in need reworking.
Otherwise you will change your mind at some point in the project.
