Wanting to build a 406 sbc

Hey everyone,
I've got a 400 SBC in my 85 Camaro right now, I'm wanting to pull the motor out and rebuild it as soon as I have some time and a little extra cash. I'd like to plan the motor out a little ahead of time so I can have everything lined up.
Was wondering what everyones input would be on this build. Anyone out there done this? What rotating assembly were used, heads, cam, intake? Specs would be nice, and what kind of power you were able to make. Also, any tips on items or parts not to over look would be greatly appreciated! This will be my first complete tear down and rebuild so I don't want to get too out of hand. I'm thinking around 500HP would be a great weekend street/strip car. I'm 19 and am looking to build a car I can have some fun with.
Thanks in advance!
