Proformance has some nice crate motors. Their Dart block motors are about $10k, and they give you a choice of cylinder heads. Call them and tell them what you want to do as far as intake is concerned.

Mine was a daily too, until January of this year or so. I only had problems on really steep driveways. Speed bumps in the road/parking lots are okay as long as I take it easy.
