Tom ,

Give us some more info, What hp at what rpm and application, drag, street , weight of car, ect.

Your hp and rpm you want to run will dictate what parts you need to meet those goals.


Your at the right place for info..............

I liked my 3500 stall on the street with 3.55 gears. Was pretty fun.

A STEEL crank with "football" rods must be a 429. You still haven't said how big your engine will actually be or it's compression ratio however, at around 10.5/1 I would use a solid lifter flat tappet camshaft in your instance.
A #416A2LUN Lunati camshaft with about 3200 stall speed convertor and right around a 3.7/1 rear gear should get you in the right direction.
