I've been thinking along the same lines. I was concidering a super high compression and e-85 fuel but that stuff just doesn't stay at a stable price, so maybe regular gas is what is appropriate today. There are many parts available for the leaning tower of power. Just need to look around.
All the old hot rod tricks will work. There are /6 specific sites, might wanna look into that as well. I have a /6 727 from an old pick up and will be using that as well. Probably gonna use a stripper Fury as I already have it, so it would be worth using. If starting over from scratcg I would put it in the smallest lightest body I could find that was not a rust bucket.

Some food for thought;

Chrysler made a performance kit for this motor called the hyper-pak

here's one being raced in an 80's pick up.
