Same rules apply to the 429 as you would use on a 460.

What kind of build are you looking for? Street? Strip? Race?

engine build archive theres a build guideline (horsepower chart) i think its called, you can surf that, and see what kinda meets what your looking for, just allow that you are short 31 cubic inches.

You'll need to be a little more specific, what are you using it for?

Turn the snot out of it? I'm gonna guess that means you're already planning to use a 4.5" or larger bore, maybe cleveland or smaller mains, maybe some honda rod journal sizes, custom rods with short pistons which use only 1 compression ring, titanium valves and retainers with 1000lbs open pressure springs matched to a nasty solid roller, custom dry sump, remote water pump... or is that a little beyond the scope of the build? Does the snot start to turn at 6000rpm or more like 11,000rpm? :D

Like this, right?

I have to admit a 7000+ rpm engine sounds neat, at least until something breaks.
You'd love the sound of my 528" A headed motor @ 7500
