Do you think the 2.9 could support 21lbs in a 427? It looks to me that the 2.9 maxes out at a little over 1000 crank hp if you look at the CFM it flows, but I'm no expert.

It would be tough to make 21psi on a built/modified 427, for that you need the 4.0L SC.

Where and when can I buy the 4.0L and what heads are they setup for? As long as I dont have to notch the windshield like a 4th gen I'm cool.

I have 580 Flywheel HP, and my clutch is not going to last much longer. It is already spinnign too often for my liking.

Fidanza is the kit I will be using, they will handle these supercharger kits with no issues.
