Motor idea changed again...

Hey guys, I again changed my idea for my combination for my motor. I did more digging and came up with a 400 4-bolt main block with ARP bolts, punched .030 over, decked, and line honed. A comp 300AR solid roller (12-705-8 - Magnum), H634CP30 pistons, scat 4340 I-beam rods, and an eagle cast steel crank. For the heads, I ended up with a set of ported Brodix track 1's, and either a Team G or Bowtie single plane intake. With an 830 carb on E85. I know the cam is on the small side, but I'm not trying to squeeze every bit of power humanly possible out of this combo yet. But any other opinions would be appreciated.

Is there a question in here somewhere or just a statement?

sorry, wrote this when I was extremely tired last night. I was wondering if anyone has used a combo similar to this. If so how'd it work out? Also if anyone had any advice on this whole combination.

I have reservations about the survivability of the Eagle Cast Crank. I expect you'll be over 500 HP (that's off the top of my head, though) and I don't think cast crankshafts hold up too well in that environment.

my cam is a comp solid roller. makes very good power from 2500 to 4000,then from 4000 hang on!!!!I put a 6k chip in the rev limiter to keep the car straight on street tires. The car will also lope along at 65 mph turning about 2200 rpm in high gear. rough idle,,,950 rpm
