427 Rasied block buildup

We used to work on a lot of heavy trucks (C60 and C70 series) . As a result, there are a couple of 427 raised block truck engines sitting around. After hearing of some guys using these to build big (540 ci) inch mud runners. I thought about collecting the parts for a buildup. Is there some chart that tells the possible ci's and what components are used? I saw one stroker kit nearly 600 cubes....

The biggest You can build the truck block 427 is a 496 pushing the limit 502 not recommended.. It can't tollerate the 4.5 bore needed to make it a 540. Built as a 496 it can be made into one hell of a stump puller with gobs of torque.
