What's the best Starter for 70 HO 455

Does anyone have an opinion on what the best starter would be to put on a slightly modified 70 HO 455. I want to put a new starter on the engine before I put the engine back in the car. The car will have HO Exhaust Manifolds (no headers) I would like to put one on that will be very reliable. Delco may be fine, but I thought I would ask for advice and experience. I know sometimes the factory starters have issues with heat. Thanks

High torque Mini starter, small housing allows for more air flow and room around the manifolds and less heat sink.
