500 hp Cleveland

I recently got my car back after some extensive work.
The cleveland 351 engine was dynoed and peaked at 505 hp @ 6750 rpm and
417 Lb-Ft @ 5750 rpm.
I havent had the chance to run the motor until now, but its been worth the wait.
I could listen to this engine all day, the idle is music to the ears.

how much did it cost all up for the work done to get the motor to produce that power?
