I donít know what intake to buy... I was looking at a stealth.....

Also I am going to put a 150 shot on it. I donít know what size injectors I will need I was thinking 60's?

One thing jumps out - the cam, as in a bunch of it. Especially for that displacement.

If you're putting this thing on the track the Stealth's best characteristics (mid-to-upper-RPM power and throttle response) will be wasted. You will probably want a Victor or other single-plane intake.

If you're putting it on the street and want to stay in the power range where the Stealth will give you the best performance and response, you will most likely want to dial back on the cam a bit and bulk up your mid-range power goals instead of going all-out for high-RPM horsepower.

8) With those longer rods and a zero deck block. C9VE, your pistons are going to slam into the heads. Deck clearence for a 69 block is .010+Comp height 1.890+Rod Length 6.605+ Crank Throw 1.795 total = 10.300 vs yours 0.000+1.89+6.768+1.795=10.453 adding .010 that will give you 10.463, that .163 above deck height, unless i'm missing something, and you have made other adjustments to the rotating assembly. Or are using two head gaskets, or are shavinhg the piston tops.
Just doing the math on what you posted. IMO 8)

i also hope the 440 rods are at least the 6 pack ones.the regular ones will be taking a exit from your block at that rpm :shock:

Sounds similar to what I have:

D1VE block
60 over TRW flat top 460 pistons
BME 440 rods
Stock 429 crank (Have forged one in a crate for a spare)
XE274H comp cam
Ford SVO intake
Aem EMS with all AEM sensors + 42lb/hr injectors

Just haven't decided on my heads. The prices on the new SCJ heads are torturing me. I had a few setbacks in the last year or 2, who hasn't though? With any luck I'll have this thing together and installed this fall/winter.
