That's going to get you about 9.7:1 c.r., 450 hp is a pretty lofty goal for a first time motor builder, what parts do you already have and what's your budget?

That is a big number for a first build, if the budget allows it then it will also be a pretty cool first build lol.
Heads, look here, 210, 64cc, 208/160, good low lift numbers for a street car that wants to go fast and at $1150 out the door its well priced
SBC 23 Degree Cylinder Heads
Intake use a edelbrock pn# 7101 performer RPM
I watched a 383 put down 441whp with this cam and less head a month ago.

Carb, I would likely go with this
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/hly-0-82851/overview/

Even with just shy of 10:1 this should be a stout piece
Add a 3500+ stall, some 411's and hold on......
Course I do love spending someone else's money.

D D use a moderate "hydraulic roller cam" Dont mess with sissy parts if you want power. I personally prefer a solid roller cam. Dont waste your time or money on a flat tappet cam.
750 CFM carb or better yet good F.I. system
good quality headers and a 3 inch dual exhaust system if you have the room.10:1 CR or close to that is a good place to start your math work. The heads should flow 275 plus CFM on the intake side. Balance and blue print the engine as best you can. we can all guide you when you answer budget question,,,,
fast and loud is the easy part

Holley 750HP Proform 750HP quickfuel 750hp

Professional Products Hurricane intake (port match to the heads.)

1-3/4" long tube headers CD ignition (MSD Crane etc)
9" 10" 3500++stall

You must verify roller cam to connecting rod bolt clearance on this build.
If a small base circle cam is required call Comp cams to order it.
Set the valve lash COLD .004" less than the cam card hot lash spec.
Enjoy
So how much hp do u think that setup will make

this combo should easily make the power you want while keeping the RPM civil.There is more power on the table,just depends on your budget. The heads and cam are where you look for HP.Keep in mind that at some point the extra horses will come with higher RPM.

perhaps you should PM fbird if you want him to answer?There are many variables,including the talent of the engine builder.The parts are adequate to meet your goals.You can do the math yourself.Get the head flow numbers and multiply the intake value by 2.2,,,this will give you the power potential.
now you look for weakness in the combination,IE:
exhaust flow is less than 78-80% of the intake side,
The cam specs are not perfect to extract the max flow from the heads,
The intake will have limitations
The carb has limitations,
exhaust system may have less than ideal parts,(wrong size headers,too small exhaust system,
ignition system???
anything that is less than perfect will take away from the formula,,,,

other things combustion chamber shape,compression ratio,valve train,drag,
final tuning,CRITICAL,done by someones butt or on a chasis dyno
add up all the flaws and subtract that from the total possible power out put

one2go, Like bygddy said the Pro-filer heads are excellent heads along with AFR, Brodix, etc. With your kit with flat top pistons I would go with the 72cc chamber heads. With 70cc heads the compression ratio would be 10.317 and a 8.717 DCR. With the 72 cc heads the compression ratio would be 10.101 and the DCR 8.538 with the camshaft you have listed. Also this is with a "0" decked block and a .041 head gasket. Check out the website on the Pro-filer heads with your engine specs it says you can use the 195cc or 210cc intake ports. SBC 23 Degree Cylinder Heads. This engine should kick $$$.
