a 79 454 out of a c30 truck is not a tall deck I think it is an excellent starting point for you. I would definetly trash can the heads and try to find an early 70's set. they are the large oval port and have open chambers I would put 2.19 intakes along with 1.88 exhaust and use 70 ls6 pistons they were designed for closed chambered heads but with the open heads they make about 9 to one which is plenty for today's gas. I like the performer rpm intake/cam set up for the street ,they makes tons of power under 6000 rpm you will also need a carb with about 850 cfm and I also prefer vacume secondarys unless you have a lot of gear and a stick shift
