Check out Team Chevelle, there are lots of hard running 427s. They require more money for some parts but if you have the block, crank, and rods you might as well use it. I couldn't give away my 427 rotating assembly with a forged crank, aftermarket rods, and forged pistons so I rebuilt the engine instead.
If starting from scratch a 454/496 is usually easier since you can find a bare block or complete engine fairly cheap depending on area. I think it's funny that a SBC 427 is the ultimate but a BBC 427 is a waste of engine.
