Would balancing the rotating assembly help also?

Balancing is an excellent idea for any engine, but particularly as rpm capability is increased.

Please ask the same question in the same topic in the Tech section.  He posted twice.  I'm going to delete this one so we don't have two conversations about the same subject with the same person in different places.

Well prepped C2ae rods or Aftermarket replacement rods. Good valve springs, tubular pushrods and a good balance job would be your basics to make the engine reliable.
 To make power at 6000 rpm or so you would need some head porting,or alum. heads , 228-234 @.050 duration. .500 lift is nice. 600-650 cfm carburetor.  Highly modded stock "B" manifold or aftermarket alum., and set of good headers and exhaust.
A well built 6000 rpm 292 should make 310-370hp  depending on part choice at a streetable compression.
 We just built a .060" over 292 matching these specs with aluminum heads and manifold,  1" dual oval spacer and our 55' F100 EMC tri y headers made 365hp and 370lbs tq.
