Sounds like you've decided on a 466" engine so you'll want to build for torque based on on the build chart already mentioned since your going to be putting it in a heavy car like the T-bird.

Is your engine a 429, or a 460?

well i didnt decide on a 466, the block needed that much work to get it right, so this is what i have to work with. i do have a specific question, do i need to watch piston ring gap on this particular engine build
thanks in advance

As long as it is large enough for the pistons being used.

Most often ... recommended top ring end gaps are a minimum needed to prevent "end butting".
