440 with a lot of low end torque...

I have a 1972 Chrysler New Yorker with 440/727 and 8 3/4 rearend with posi. This engine is rated at 225 hp and a low 8,2-1 compression ratio. I am new into Chrysler and have a lot of questions....I want to know the best way to make this car into a kind of performer. I know it is heavy, but I would like it to do low 13 sek on the strip. I think that I should need around 500 horses to get that goal. I am planning on stroking the 440 to 500 cui. I want as much low end torque I can get, to keep the rearend ratio nearly standard, and as smooth idle as possible. I want to hear about cam selection, which heads to use , I guess that the factory heads on this engine can't do the job - am I right about this?, intake that wil fit under my hood, carb. etc. Any suggestions are appreciated...
