Big Block Blueprinting and Edelbrock Top End Kit

Hey everyone:

My father and I figured the winter would be a good time to begin building the motor for our '69 project. It's not going to be a track car, but we do want it to have some go, and will have a TH400 and 12-bolt with 3.73's behind it. We don't have much experience with blueprinting big blocks and wanted to ask for some expertise.

What we've got so far: A 1968 block bored 0.030 over, stock steel crank, and a set of TRW L2240N forged pistons (which have a bit of a dome on them). We'll be picking up a set of rods soon to get the rotating assembly balanced (either GM Dimple Rods or Eagle I-Beams, opinions on these?)

As for the top end, we are considering the BBC Top End Kit that Edelbrock puts out. Does anyone have experience with these, and will the pistons I have work with them?

Any information is appreciated.
