Great deal on an engine? Take or Leave?

Hey guys...so long story short...i ran into a performance shop by my house...they were selling a 454 that had 30k miles on it...looks nice, painted, and has a brand new serpentine system on it and it is completely stock.. i asked the guy if i can run a compression test to check the cylinders and he said go right on ahead..he is selling this engine for $950.. casting number is 3999289 (i believe it is a 2-bolt)..my goal is to reach 450-500 HP..as of right now i have a Gen v 454 out of a '94 suburban(4-bolt)..what do you guys think??? buy this engine and sell off the Gen V or keep? (by the way the one i currently have needs an overhaul as two of the cylinders showed significantly low numbers when i did a compression test) strictly street use guys...thanks for your input
