94 engine should be good roller block. The other block without caps may not have any value. Two bolt caps are fine. Do use two bolt blocks that are cross bolted not just the stock two bolts. But i have never stretched a cap bolt. Other engines will pull the bolts out and trash the crank but for chevy small blocks its pretty damn hard to trash one with just well tuned hp.

70s impalas came with 454s as an option. Also most trucks. 400 engine is no big deal. I would not spend time hunting one. A New block is not as crazy priced as you may think. Same goes for the big block. Once it needs line bored on the crank and cam well you covered at least half the cost of a good after market block from world of products or dart.
