Motown 427 Short Block Build

I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to finish out a Motown 427 short block (low comp., -20cc Rev Dome pistons). Its going in a 69 Camaro vert. Ive got a Currie 9 with 3.70 gears and a TKO-600 w/ the .64 OD.

The complete crate engine from World has 520 hp and 495 ft. lbs. Id like to build my engine with at least 500 hp and about the same on the torque. One trick is I need to keep this thing under the stock hood and its not a cowl. That probably means a dual plane manifold and if possible Id like to put dual quads on it (just cause I think theyre cool). I also need to be able to run the AC, pwr steering and breaks.

Im confident I can put the engine together I just dont know what heads, cam etc.. to use. I do know Id like to stay hydraulic on the lifters to stay away from the maintenance of adjusting the solids. Any help would be great.
