I would build a big block for the car and consider a 355 or 373 rear gear for the street. with this combo you will have better et's than with the 411 gears and the big block (due to the torqe output of the big block) and lower revs that you can live with on the street. You'll need to consider your front springs and probably step up to a set of stiffer/big block springs, but at least you won't be left craving the power of a big block when your done.
