I'd bore .30-.40 over, for internals depends on what your doing and how much HP your trying to get? But I would always go with forged internals . Is it a stock block? Stock blocks are good for 400-450hp max 500hp

Wouldn't go past .030 over. Anything past that and reliability will become an issue if you if you are building a daily driver.

Need to know more about what you want to do with the engine.

Are you going to develop that 450 HP with N/A parts or are you going with forced induction?

If you wanna go N/a it possible but very expensive. Easiest and cheapest is power adder. Nitrous is my fav. Lol. For around $400 you can have 150 horsepower at you becken call.

You can, but building HP is expensive no matter how you choose to do it.
Even using the cheapest power adder (Nitrous) you should build the bottom end to withstand the additional forces and abuse. Otherwise, eventually you will have a failure.

Start out with all forged, good quality bottom end components (pistons, rods & crankshaft) and you will have a base to add onto.
I would also add a DSS Main Support System and a Valley Girdle Pro to help strengthen the block.

Most likely it will be fine.
Is the crankshaft a cast iron or forged piece?
The stock internals will usually hold up to 500 HP if the engine is kept in good tune and you don't pound on it mercilessly.

I don't know for sure, but a machine shop should be able to tell you.
If you got it with the block for $50 I would bet that it is a cast iron crank as the forged ones are much more expensive and I don't see anyone letting one go that cheaply.

It's possible then.
There should be some numbers or identifying marks on it somewhere.
