3rd gen short block

Hey yall. I found a hemi short block for sale for $450. Of course this would go towards a stroker at some point. Is this a good deal for a SB?

If you check the mopar sites that build stroker motors and see what they are asking for core charge. It will give you some idea what the values are. Prices seriously vary depending on the situation. A friend's shop replaced a GC engine with a 5.7 remanufactured complete engine. The core was $600. I paid them the core charge for the long block.
Storytime: the owner of the GC took it to the dealer for a over heating problem. Dealer told the owner it needed a new engine and was told to go ahead and replace it. The dealer took it to my friends shop and told him not to troubleshoot it and just install the remanufactured engine. The dealer drove the car to the shop... the engine doesn't show any indication of over heating. The mechanic who actual changed the engine told me he thought the thermostat had stuck.. The car was maintained by the dealership. The oil I took out of the engine was past due for change, looked like about 7000mi on conventional oil. The point I'm making is do not trust the dealer!

What year ? $450 is low end of the ball park, there's one in Philly an 08 for $500. also depends on where you are in the country, I know people in the north West are happy if they can find one under 1k My junk yard guy hooks me up @ $100 a Bare block,$350-1k depending on mileage for runner , and $250-400 for core.
