best crank for BBC 427?

i have a 3 3/4in stroke 396/427 steel (not cast iron) with a .010 grind. i am looking to get 500hp outta the 427. i am looking into boring the 427 .30 over, which would make it 4.2810. i am very new to this and plan on buying all my parts and getting the motor professionally built. all i know is what i read on these bulletins. thanks

If you are serious about building a 500hp+ 427 BBC:

The best crank for a 427 would be a crank with a 4.250 inch stroke.

Awesome video Fbird, thanks. That 396 would make a Chevelle or Camaro scream.
