I would find a set of DOOE-R heads and exhaust manifolds with a stealth intake. Some compression and good spec'd cam you should be fine, other s on here with more knowledge should be able to help out also

Sounds like you need my motor. 473" Dooe-r headed with a stealth intake. Eagle crank with Eagle h-beams, speed pro flat tops in the holes. Get in touch with BOSS429 here on the forum, he does a lot of successful pulling motors and can steer you in the right direction.

This is a little different than heartlands rules, Heartlands rules allow a weight bar, and intake has to be oem iron.
