454 BUILD please help.

hey guys, well i did a search as to not be a bother but I'm really not finding anything on 454's. I'm getting a 454 this weekend that is mildly built and was just looking for some info on things i can do to make it a street monster. i know theirs info needed but i don't have it all yet. i basically want a 550+ motor for my camaro and this one is coming to me pretty cheap so i want to utilize it. i cant afford aluminum heads but i do know how to port/polish and ball blend. it already has flat top pistons bored over to a 468, air gab intake and 740 carb. not sure on cam or heads yet. could someone please throw some idea's out there for me?

i asked on the camaro forum I frequent and all i got was "dont bother, waste of time, crappy engine" etc. growing up i always heard the 454 was the whip.. am i missing something? i would think this motor would be a beast in my camaro.


ps, my budget at this moment could afford different pistons and cam if needed.
