Bear with me here, I don't have much expirience with mopar engines. I doing some research trying to help a friend. What do we need as far as parts to get in the neighborhood of 900hp. Can we get 540ci with the stock block? Also would like the hp to peak at 7k or less. This is for a truck pull class, we must use a stock block , no power adders or forced induction, sigle 4 barrel carb on a cast aluminum intake. Any cast iron or aluminum head is ok, roller cams ok, race gas ok. Thanks in advance.

And the piston/rod combo tends to be lighter as well. Google "400 cold weather block". You might search for those terms on moparts.
