First, I sympathize with you on the loss of your Dad, It's tough. I know.

One choice would be a 4779 Holley, number found on the choke air horn. Double pumper mech. 2'ndaries, 750 cfm.

I would start with the jetting that came in it- I don't have my Holley book in front of me ATM, but can find the stock specs if you don't find them elsewhere. Power valve depends on your manifold vacuum. Start w/a 65 and go down if needed.

I would run it and tune from there.

Summit's girdles are decent pieces. No fancy anodizing, but who cares --they fit and worked just fine the two I've used.

as stated previously, i feel that a 750 (4779) will give you at least 10 maybe 15 to 20 more hp. as for the heads, i feel in stock form they are limited to maybe 440 hp, so whatever port work is done will determine hp output. i haven't seen any dyno tests on these heads with a roller cam, maybe someone here has. my guess is about 475 hp, with ALOT of torque. if the heads are better than i believe, you could see 500hp (jmo).

4779 jetting is 70 or 71, front, and 80 rear. the older ones had 70 in front, the newer ones, around 4779-5 and up had 71 in front. all but one came with 80 in the rear. i've found stock holley jetting is usually very close.

DynoSim Advanced Engine Simulation version 4.20 with Pro Tools. Comes from Pro Racing Sim LLC. This was a $250 sim that was on sale for $99. Might still be.
http://www.proracingsim.com/
If I were to do it over, I'd buy a stronger Sim with more cam spec software in it.

Edit: Just looked through the website. Recommend DynoSim 5 with Pro Tools for $99.95 and Cam Disc 8 for $49.95

It's your call. More lift means earlier fatigue on the valve springs. The DynoSim I did for you was with 1.5 rockers and I didn't see too much wrong with those figures....
