A pair of older oval port closed chamber heads along with a decent cam, your new intake, carb, and headers, will make your 454 a nice street engine with decent power. I'd make sure the older heads had hardened seats and SS valves, plus go bigger on valve size to 2.19/1.88" size. It will also be a very streetable combo that still runs on pump gas.
If your engine is a good runner, I wouldn't mess with the rotating assembly for mainly street use.
