I think you would have better luck looking for a 401 crankshaft (same stroke) plus more bolt transmission options. But either way your looking at $400 to $700 for either a 390 or 401 crank plus shipping cost. If your running a turbo the extra 20-25 cubic inches will never be known.

I have a 390 crank that is machined for the 904/727 trans that I was going to put in to a 360 block as well.  Not sure if I have rods though. How much are you willing to spend?

I mainly was interested in going to the forged crank and rods versus the cast 360 items for durability not as much for the cubic inch increase.
 
Although the stroke increase will give me some compression ratio increases and slightly different bore and stroke ratios. There are a bunch of other details but durability was the biggest one though.
 
I hadn't considered 401 cranks only because they seemed even more sparce and even more pricey.
 
I don't mind spending several hundred bucks for a good crank but the couple 401s I came across were around 1000 for a core around here.
 
I am looking to ultimately run a powerglide depending on what I decide to do with the end result.
 
If I'm not happy with the end result it may just end up a manual trans.

Do you have a AM belled power glide? I have one on my site. 390 and 401 crank's as well. This power glide was got from a AMC AMX race team up in the Seattle area years ago. His name was Brian Johnson. I think there car was an old Pintos car out of Florida. Any way if your interested go to amc-performance.com
