429 Budget Build

Just ran across a 1970 T Bird with 429/c6 with low miles supposedly. My question is what upgrades would be recommend to stock 429 on a budget? Motor will be going in a 78 f250 crew cab 2wd prerunner.
Thanks

An intake and cam to match your intended rpm range would be yield substantial results for minimal investment. Cam spec will be key, as the static compression ratio is on the high side for pump gas and iron heads...or you can just use an octane booster.
