if you do go the stock block route, i'd reccomend half filling the block with block fill. this makes the bottom end more ridgid and takes some of the water jacket fears away. an aftermarket block is definately the ticket though with larger than normal cubes, imo, if cash is not an issue. i'd do it, my next motor will be a 427+ small block as well, but my 406 is still serving well. it depends on what you want out of it, a 406 can make plenty of horsepower as well. i like your head choice, and scat i believe offers srp pistons in thier kits, which i highly reccomend. good luck with it at any rate [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
