With the 2500 stall and assuming a full interior 94 which is a little portly compared to the older Foxes, Id run something like this: Should be a nice broad power band.

This idea that the weight difference between Foxbodies and SN95 cars matters should just die already. The difference is maybe 200 pounds when comparing similar configurations. That's a passenger. Maybe a passenger and some stuff in the trunk. But it's not insurmountable and a 357W is not going to notice it.

Agreed, but my point was more about being a full interior street car versus maybe a gutted out race car. Should have been more clear.

I have a 352, tw205, sv intake, 9:1, 238/242 619/629 solid roller. Made 480hp at 6700 with a very flat rpm power band. Ran with 650 carb and 1 5/8 headers. Bigger carb and intake it would make 500hp+. Nice idle and great drivability. The constant lash adjustment shouldn't happen.
Cam is for sale if your interested. Going a different route yet again.

If the cam and valve train are up to it, 6700 is nothing.
Have a friend with a 327 or 331 with a large single turbo that dynoed 1200-1300 hp that had the power still climbing at 8000rpms with out of the box tw 170s. We were all shocked.
