    Any BBF block is good for 800+hp no problem and i've seen plenty with some upgraded parts with over 1000hp hold together just fine.

    I was told that any 385 series ford block can put out the ponies. Look at the thread about chevy's v's ford. Look at lakes only, something like that. He builds fords, has or can get what you want. he is the guy i am going to use for mine this winter.

    Generally speaking, all 429/460 blocks are good candidates for performance builds, and certianly 500 hp is a walk in the park and can be done with the factory iron. Late or early blocks, neither is necesssarily better than the other but sometimes one may consider using one block over the other, depending on the particulars of the build.

    How big is the engine you intend to build? A 0.030 over bored 460? Or a 500+ cubic inch stroker?

    Lastly, we have dozens and dozens of cylinder blocks for sale over here, and I can help you select a block that would be a good candidate for your engine build. Or I can answer questions that you have and help point you in the right direction for your build-up
