i know this is alittle off topic, i always heard you needed aluminum rods in a boat because of the shock (loading and unloading the engine so fast) when you land after having left the water (jumped a wave). is this not true? i ask because you specified steel rods.
just curious,
Casey

i know of a couple of guys that have tried aluminum rods but went back to steel not sure what the problem was but as far as I know everyone is using steel rods now with us few and far between ford guys in the sport Corrila and oliver rods seem to stand up to the most punishment

When in doubt, hammer down!

Garage
I could do an engine to meet your needs for $6750.00.

The engine would use ported SCJ aluminum heads, Victor intake (4150 or dom), solid flat tappet cam, forged Diamond Racing pistons, forged 4340 rods (H or I beam), a stock block, and a stock 460 crank. 700+hp at 6250rpm on 108+ octane (race gas or E85). You may also want to consider 4-bolt mains which run +$600.00.

Nobody makes a forged 4340 crank with a 3.85 stroke that I'm aware of, so the next step up from stock would be billet at $1850+. Another option would be to do an offset ground forged 429 truck crank with longer rods and custom pistons for something close to 470 CID....cost would be approx $350 + the price of the crank core, which may be difficult to find.
