Post Advice building 258

I'm going to hire someone to rebuild my 258. does anyone have advice on what components should be upgraded for preformance and reliability. I'm leaning toward a crane cam to give better lowend as well and better highway performance. But what else?? It will get fuel injection too.

I rebuilt my I6 besides a higher lobe lift or lower depends what you what it to do, maybe high performace lifts like Rhodes, roller cams as well high performace push rods, think about borging it open .030, new computer chip by Jet, k&n air fliter etc....

Where u gonna put an air filter on an injected engine ?

Rhodes lifters are v noisey as per a previous post.

Crane cam and Holley Pro Jection will send it flying.
