Between $450 and $650 should get you a decent set.

I got my forged TRW for $300 from a closing down sale 4 years ago. Just keep your eye open for some deals. Make sure you get your pistons first, then get the block bored to suit the pistons you bought.
Still for what you want, get some decent pistons then spend your money on controlling those big, heavy cleveland valves.
Get good valves, retainer/locks and springs and rev away!!

Try and buy the bulk of your engine rebuild items from one place and tell the guy on the other side of the counter that if he looks after you he's got your business, if not go somewhere where they will. I know if someone comes into my store its better to make $200 on a large sale than make nothing at all.
