Have u looked at the new Dart SHP block for $1800? or the new 351 Boss block? If still out of ur price range look at a 69-74 351W block.
IMO, don't use the standard CHP forged crank which is a RPM. Go Scat 4340 and Probe 4340 I beam rods w/ 7/16 rod bolt or Scat pro series 4340 I beams, Probe or ross pistons, Romac ultralite damper and aluminum flywheel, this will allow it to spin up real fast, neutral balanced, hellfire ring set, clevite H-series rod and main bearings, canton 7qt pan.
a 427 IMO, needs at least a 225cc head, and not RHS. TFS Hi-port 225 cnc'd, TFS-R 225 cnc'd or even a TFS-R 235 from TEA. I would also look at a super victor lower intake and a CHP elbow AND a custom cam, not the cam u have listed.
u could also compare the 427 crate race motors Bennett Racing and Keith Craft racing have on their websites to give u an idea of what a 427 looks like inside.
