newbie here building a 327 looking for atleast 400 hp.

Here is what I have, all of this is going in to a 1970 nova.
Looking to get between 400 and 450 hp if possible.

1968 327 gm block
set of 462 double humps (only an hour run time since being checked and rebuilt at the machine shop.)
327 has the steel forged crank in it.

What else do I need, I am open to suggestions

What piston and cam combos do yall think. As always money is a factor as any family man knows!



Im completely new to this engine building so please talk in simple terms.

This is the beginning of a weekend strip toy so not worried about trying to keep it street friendly.

Thanks in advance for any help I can get.
