Based on the fact that you're likely going to be making 750+HP, I'd either stay with the 429 crank you have, or get a forged stroker crank. You're already buying aftermarket rods and pistons, so...

At 4.445, you're probably going to end up with about .010 piston/wall clearance with an average forged 2618 piston, which is going to be excessive for all but the most extreme applications.

Fuel cell foam is a "consumable". It will break down over time, and some are more resistant to ethanol than others. A couple years ago when I got mine, Speedway was the only place that had foam...

I didn't see your stall speed? Be careful about adding more cam. Bigger peak HP numbers don't always equate to faster times.

Have you worked on timing and jetting much? I wouldn't get hung up...

L2366's are 429 pistons, so depending on the rest of the combination, and where you plan to use it, you may get away with smaller chamber heads on pump gas. The pistons have stock location valve...

Google says 510-525 for a 351W. I subtracted some for alum heads and added some for the 4-bolt Boss block and stroker crank.

The main "problems" are that it's a small block, the heads are no better than mildly ported factory iron big block heads, and the compression is too low for the combination.
