454 race build

hows everyone doing?

I am starting off on a new project that's completely new for me I'm building my first BBC. and just to make sure i get all the hard stuff in on my first build i'm going to top it off with a weiand 6-71 supercharger. so I may be asking for alot of help in the coming weeks.

but at the moment I'm just getting it ready for the machine shop.

the block is a gen IV 454 I don't know yet if it has 4 bolt or 2 bolt mains.

when i get it to the machine shop other than cleaning manufluxing and maybe punching it .030 over is there anything special that needs to be done to a big block?

i have done several SBC's but like i said I'm new to big blocks.

I'm also not to sure on the heads yet but I'm hoping they are 118cc
target compression is going to be around 9:1 I'll be running dual holly 750 dp's
on race fuel NOT PUMP GAS
this is not going to be a street car It's a 77 nova that's full race
currently it will be backed by a th350 tranny with a 4500 stall converter and 12 bolt Chevy posi with 4.88 gears

I'm hoping to get around 750-800 hp
any suggestions on cam combinations or anything else I need to know to help me from messing up on this build?

any help is greatly appreciated
