454 build need some good advice
hey everybody I am new to the forum and am in the planning phase for my engine. Well I'm no expert and will be having a local shop do most of the work due to the fact I don't have the tools. I will try to be involved as much as possible. Anyways I have a 454 with 049 heads not sure what is all in the bottom end. It has a holly 750 dp I will be changing the pistons but trying to keep the stock rods and crank. It will be going back into a 72 cutlass with an automatic tranny built for performance and 342 gears. It will be a street car and proubably never see a track maybe once if they talk me into it.I want something that is good for the road but is also a beast when I want to play around. Any suggestiong or advice would be greatly appreciated and as stated before I'm no expert so that is why I have turned to all of you. Thanks again
