You are not going to make 450 horsepower with 451 cubic inches and a cam that small.Plus you want to shift at 5500 rpm.You are going to need better heads,bigger cam,and about 6000 to 6500 rpm depending on the heads.Or just get a 440 and stroke it.Then it would be a lot easier.I don't know much about the 452's.But you will still need to look for a bigger cam IMHO.
