My buddy has a 94 or 95 Gen 5 454 BBC,looks to be in decent shape except for the cam bearings.Heads are oval port casting # 12562932.Apparently there is only 28,000 miles on it.The crank,rods and pistons are still in the block and from what I can see in pictures the cylinders look to be OK.
He would like 500 HP at the flywheel and he would like to keep the heads if possible.
Any suggestions ??

1.10HP per cube is not asking alot. His goal can be reached with a camshaft change if the engine is pretty healthy. Any factor BBC head can flow 240 cfm which is needed to make this power.
