Based on your location, I would take it to Eddie Young at Young Performance near Nashville. One of the best marine engine builder.

Frank McComas at Scorpion Enterprise is a Great Builder... builds engines for a few Super Cat race teams with great success.

I have used The following without issues- m&m in delaware and wasserbeck in prospect. I am tempted to check and see how Bob Proffits son is handling things at Performance Reaearch in Westerville. His dad seemed to know his stuff on engines but people either liked him or hated him, more on personality from what I gather. On just a mild 502 have them build it to merc HP500 specs and pick a good cam and roll with it.

I remember when Perf Research was the big dog in town.

Lately I have heard a lot of good about Wasserbeck.

Pretty high up the food chain in drag racing.
