Iíd sump my rear tank, mount a rail mounted pump and filter and run a new supply and return hoses. Ditch the front tank. Matt Hill makes a sumped tank Do a little research on blowers. Youíll find there are CW and CCW and some require a oil supply and drain line and some are self contained. There are no kits so youíll need to put it together yourself. 42# injectors are probably too small. Fuel requirements for NA vs Boosted are different too. Iím just shooting from the hip with my answers too. Just something to think about and Iím sure get others chiming in!
    Iím debating what to do at this point, luckily most of the intakes Iíve considered are back ordered some till November...fun stuff, but I just donít know if Iíll be able to swing that type of adder to my budget at this time. This quickly turned into a very overwhelming process.

    Iíd just stay focused and get it running. Build it, put the Gt40 on it and go have fun. Iím sure itís gonna be powerful. Enjoy it and work bugs out. Then budget for another round of mods for the future.

    500 fwhp or rwhp... Let's not forget that Struckby (Ed) ran in the 12's easily and consistently with the GT40 intake atop his stroker motor. He didn't really pick up anything switching to other intakes. Cam design of course needs consideration but still. 500 fwhp is probably attainable with a ported GT40. 500 rwhp will be a hard struggle with any intake through the E4od. Want cheap? Then keep gt40 and throw a shot on it...

    mine was 500whp at 6k with a stock bottom end and untouched gt40. S trim, out of the box Vic Jr's, E 303 cam, 60lb injectors, Pickerel LT headers with a Punisher built E4OD. It went 11.60's multiple times.... the tune has a lot to do with it too...

    The $3k math isn't really apples-to-apples. If you're trying to get to 500 rwhp, you can build a very mild 408 (or 393, or 357) and put boost to it. This is probably more economical than trying to get 500 rwhp naturally aspirated. And it'll keep the GT40, which I wouldn't touch for the 500 rwhp level.

    My motor is a very mild 393, nothing fancy about it at all. It's somewhere in the ballpark of 650 rwhp with boost. And a GT40.
