'77 caddy deville 425 engine performance questions

I just recently purchased a 77 deville with a 425 ci engine. Its in pretty good shape for its age. its basically going to be my daily driver for awhile. I want to begin some performance projects but don't know of any companies/websites that offer performance parts. I'm basically looking for any knowledge or advice from people who have had experience with them. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

Just saw your post......I'm building a '75 500" Cad for my '32 Ford (replica). There is Maximum Torque Specialties in So. Cal. www.500cid.com. You can call (760) 247-2533 and talk to Marty Lane, he's the owner and can dial you in on the parts needed for your application.

As you might expect the stuff isn't cheap but really not too bad. They have a forum and also another forum www.cadillacpower.com. There is a lot of stuff for the big Cadillac, here's a few pics of mine mocked up in the chassis.
