Post stroked 460

Hey.
I want to build a stroked 460. I want 600 HP at the rear wheels.
1) How much would this cost? I know I could build a 530 HP one for $5500.
2) what are the advantages of a aluminum block over a regular besides weight? any?
3)I know currie rearends are about 3k and can handle LOADS of torque...
How much torque can iuck change rearends handle? I like the idea of street gears and racing gears in one package...(also who makes them?) isaw them on tv...

There's a herd of quickchange rearends now days, Winters (one of my favorites, used to make the clurchflite conversion that were popular in the late sixties early seventies and starting up production again for any of you interested, real nice guys, Father and son), Speedway and Halibrand are a few. They should be able to take it.

aluminum blocks are easier to repair if something goes wrong.

The cylinders are sleeved. Theoretically, the block wouldn't wear out. Just keep re-sleeving.
