4500 pound truck is not going to launch hard without a lot of gearing/traction and hook.
If you get all of that,its also going to be a parts breaker.
I would consider building a 380 hp,,500 # torque 454 that peaks at or just over 5,000 rpm.This will be easier all around.
Basically an LS-5 with mild cam,headers,good 4 barrel and intake
