That's a good choice for transmission just make sure it will handle the torque your engine will develop. The gears may be a bit steep unless you build it for high RPMs.
Are you sure you want to do this?
I ask because it will make your car extremely nose heavy and not much good for anything but straight line blasts.
I researched doing this too and I actually have 4-5 429/460 engines sitting in my garage along with a C6 transmission or two. After much research about installation, handling and actual performance gains, I decided that when I want more cubes I will go with a 351W and bore/stroke it to 408 or 427 CI. It will provide really good HP (1000+ w/forced induction) and my car will retain its handling characteristics.
