i would use the probe i-beams and flat top pistons, victor dominator intake, comp 294-b solid flat tappet cam, 1050 dominator carb, and for $25-go to scotty's site and port your self a set of c8-c9, or doves and you will be there at 500. if you can get the 340 cfm on intake and 190 on exhaust, you will be at the 550 mark. i made just under 500 with this combo with 310cfm home port heads and stealh intake , 850 carb in a 69 mustang with shitty restrictive crities headers Shocked imho "jay"

There is no such thing as low budget and 500+hp. You can cut some corners, but you still need to realize that this is beyond the abilities of the stock rods and cast or hyper pistons. I am not saying you need to spend $10k, but it will be more than $4k. The above advice is very sound, and I would do the H-beams over the I-beams, in case you want to add more to it later. The upgrade is minimal in price.
