He says its sitting at about 225 crank hp.
That sounds about right, he must have some really good port work done to hit those numbers. Can you get a dyno plot? And maybe a couple pics of the motor?
Like I said this is a great deal. I'm currently building a stroker so I'm aware of what it costs to build a motor like this. For all the parts listed above it's an easy $2k (Just the cam, springs and retainers alone will cost about $1k). And for all the parts not listed to rebuild the motor (seals, gaskets, bearings, etc) you're spending another $800-$1000. Take into consideration that there's easily another $600 in machine shop work + the time to assemble the motor and you can see that if you were to pay someone to build a motor like this it would cost you in the range of $4000-$5000.
If I hadn't already spent a bunch of money on my stroker project I'd be all over this.
