Its definatly going to take a lot of money.
Start with a good block. Totally rebuilt with lowered compression (somewhere around 19:1). Use a 6.9 as its less prone to cavitation. Have a machine shop look and see if they can tap the heads and block for 9/16" head studs, if they can, I dont think the heads are going anywhere. Have them balance the rotating mass to 5000rpm's. Have a custom grind cam made up (I know somebody who offeres a torque cam through his cam guy, I have rode in his truck, it has amazing bottom end). You need custom valve springs, as you dont want to float valves. IP is going to have to be custom, the super moose pump pushs out 120cc's of fuel, which is good for??? 300hp at the wheels I believe. Stud the intake manifold, after that, its all up to you.
