I have an 454 block with casting #361959 2 bolt main where its bored 0.040 over, 0.020 main bearing, 0.030 con bearing.
I need a complete combination parts that can increase my horse power to around 500 hp if possible and can be used as daily drive street performance and with air condition for my 69 Camaro.
My trans is th400 3 speed automatic.
