Depending on tire size those 373's are going to make first gear almost useless with your 700r4. Big car means big wheel well, fill them with a 275 to tame the gear a bit. As you already have your intake, vortec heads won't really be cost effective, so find some 416 castings, then read everything F-bird88 has to say about them, you will hear tons of negative on the subject, ignore it, do what he says for a very effective, very budget conscious power increase, the lunati barebones 10120101lk is cheap at 135$ with lifters. Make sure you run long tubes and a decent exhaust. A small converter and a good shift kit will make it all just that much more fun. It will make your buddies think you have lots more motor then you actually do, it will still be an excellent and reliable cruiser, get decent mileage for a tiny motor in a huge car, and have enough snot to make you feel like a hero when you want to.....and yes, it will absolutely tear the tires off when you want it too.......
