the first issue is the heads, with a race port on the factory castings may get you there, I would recomend a aftermarket aluminum head such as Indy for your application, Im pretty sure they sell head and intake packages and thats what my first big step would be...

Ofcourse your short block will need attention too, but you have forged factory pistons right? if the cylinders look good you may get away with a re-ring kit, I would go ahead and completly rebuild the short block and install main studs, and with this youll need a line hone...no biggie...it may also be a good idea to "zero" deck the block...

when your ready for a cam I highly recomend a custom grind, Buddy Rawls does great work, and I recomend him...

good luck im sure with the right parts your 440 will treat you right....( id also check out some of the stroker kits available)
