Ideas on new motor?

Going to buy 377 (4.155 x 3.48) motor from fellow racer that is building a 427 8-71 blown bigblock. Getting it dirt cheap. It is a "817" splayed cap 400 fully-cemented block with a factory forged steel crank, PBM 6" i-beam rods and Lunati pistons running 14.6 compression. It has an older set of Brodix -12 15-degree KC 12 SP B heads that he bought from the grandson of the Brodix company owner with titanium 2.15 intakes and stainless-steel 1.6 exhausts. It runs a T&D shaft rocker setup and is testflowed to 375cfm at .700 lift. The camshaft is a Comp 276/284 at .050 .673"/.630" roller with a 4/7 swap using the 1.6/1.5 rockers The intake is a Brodix HVH 1200 intake also got from the grandson. It just needs a distributor, starter, balancer and carb as he was running a magneto and Ron's Flying Toilet so will be using my current 85551 MSD distributor, Powermaster Ultra-Torque starter, ATI balancer and buy an alcohol 950cfm carburetor over a HVH 2" Super Sucker that I already use. Picking up a set of Schoenfield 1 7/8" upright headers as the ones he ran were custom made 1 3/4" uprights. What plans are to use what got and build a different sbc using a Dart block (4.125 bore with 350 mains), Callies Dragonslayer 3.5" crankshaft, Oliver or Lunati Pro-Mod 6.0" billet rods and JE solid-dome custom pistons trying to get about 15:1 as still going on alcohol. This setup should let me run with the big blocks on alcohol as am running for points in mud races around here and am 2nd in 36" Modified and 3rd in 40" Super Stock. Not bad now for a 362sbc with Dart 215cc Pro 1's. What do you think?

i'll give you $100 for it. (no i'm not serious) sounds like a nice setup. that carb might be kinda small though.

That is what AED recommended with 1 3/4" venturis that would be custom built. I pretty sure it would be too small on a bigger sbc over 400 cubes along with fuel pump even with the spacer
