Help with 466 build for foxbody

OK guys I'm about to start a 466 build once I get my block back and could use some help. The engine will be going into a foxbody mustang and looking for more of a street and strip build on a budget. Would like to stay on pump gas so no higher than 93 octane. I have D3ve heads and am planing on going with speed pro forged dome tops. That should get me in the 10.5:1 range. I have the stealth intake already. I need help picking a cam I would like to go as big as I can on stock rocker arms and pushrods... would I be able to do that with the edelbrock 7167 with new springs? Also could I use stock rods and just upgrade the bolts?

rocker arms and pushrods are not the problem. the valve guides need to be cut down to run any kind of decent cam. pushrod length needs to be established with a adjustable push rod to guarantee the geometry is correct.
....stock rod bolts are not the real enemy in factory rods. piston weight and rpm causes the small end of the rod to go away. choice seems to get threads lock lately. lol. some thing in a comp 274 extreme line would get you going....
...I happen to like the torker ii intake. have tried it and a rpm so far.....bobn

ps now that you got a response perhaps other will chime in and add more info or different ideas to consider....
