Not sure were to put this question for my fellow gear head, I have a 440 that I'm re-assembling that I just took apart it was a complete engine that had everything assembled but someone had removed the cam and lifters. I took it clear to the crank and this is what I have to work with. It should be noted all components are in excellent shape.
1. Forged crank ground 0.10 under
2. Rods 6-pac #2951908 0.10 under
3. Pistons #L2388 0.60 over down in bore 0.15
4. Block G440 HPA date 2-10-71
5. Heads 1967 HP 915's 78.5cc
6. Intake 1966 cast iron 4 barrel
7. Exhaust factory R 375171 N2 and L 3751068-2D date 1-29-73

I need to select a cam and lifters but seeing how it is a collection of different parts I,m needing help on the selection im going to be running this in a 1971 Cuda clone, the 727 built by a good transmission shop something will handle as much 600 hp, stall of 1800 to 5600 kinda the goal, running a Sure Grip 3:91 8-3/4

I would like to be somewhere close to 450 hp

Work out the true static compression ratio and put the stock intake/exhaust on a shelf in the garage.
Start there IMO.
