Dam Tod you're on a roll this week.
What kind of heads do you have. For 800hp you will probably need at least an "A" head or as Todd suggested a 600hp nos kit! just kidding.
I've got several friends ops: ops: that are die hard ford guys.

That was my first motor in the late 80's!. It was a 460 with DOVE heads. I was gonna get a set of Cobra Jet heads, but I qiut racing and sold everything (actually gave the motor to a friend and will still run). When I started back I ran Chevy big block instead.

More specs on this buildup would help determine hp.

I have seen a 440 mopar in a Camaro, and a 565bbc in a Duster. Never a ford in one. I saw the Duster last summer, and it was fast. Riding thru the pits, came across it. Looked in the engine compartment, and saw the BBC. The owner was real close, with a slie grin on his face, I said, "AHHHH, no wonder its fast". He winked, and I rode on
