Give me your ideas

I'm building a 36 ford Coupe and will be going with a 350 Chevy SB, 700R Overdrive, 9"ford, 370 posi.

Car will be used as an occasional street/strip machine...Mostly occassional street machine.

I'd like to have a just enough lope to know that the cam is not stock and I'd like to have between 375-425 hp.

I'd prefer 3 dueces, but have to keep maintenance to a minimum since I'm not a mechanic. Although I have friends that are and I'm not opposed to an annual adjustment... Since low maintenance is cruical I would also consider ram fuel or 4 barrel setup.

Who can recomend a reliable, trouble free setup that meets the above profile?

350 with Flat top pistons
AFR 180 cc, Trick flows, or 180cc Dart Iron Eagles with 64 cc chambers

2200 stall
Performer RPM intake
Holley 750 cfm with vacuum sec. (model 3310)

Should be good for 385 to 400 hp with 400 ftlb of torque.

These heads are not cheap, but they are worth it. I think this setup would work very well.
