Need a recipe for a 427 Ford build

Hello all ! I have a 64 Galaxie 500 2 dr fast back that I want to put a 427 FE Ford in. The block needs some boring maybe .30 over...I have a 390 in the car now with 428 CJ heads,RPM Performer intake match ported and a 750 Holley DP on top.I'm not wanting originality ,just a nice engine with a healthy growl.
I was thinking of possibly stroking it with a 428 crank or 4.25 scat crank.I could save money by using the CJ heads or should I find some low riser heads, aluminum heads ?? I have a Richmond Super t-10 tranny with a 9 inch 380 rear end .
My budget is moderate,I've been saving for this one.
I am a newbie at turning wrenches,but I'm learning....I have a friend close by who is an engine builder and has a machine shop.
Thanks for any feedback in advance ! It's great to be in this forum !!
