Build a 302

Ok guys I know a little about building fast cars but by no means an expert. I want to know what has worked well with your 302 builds and what has not. I am wanting to build a fully blown 302 to extimated 450HP. I dont want to break the bank. So whats on your mind. any help is good help.

I think they have recommended cam
Specs on their site. They made 500+hp on a junkyard 80's 302 with their heads, a relatively mild cam, intake and headers. Granted they did spin it to 7k

I'm thinks bore 30 over stock cam just polished. Port and polish the heads. Long tube headers with 3 inch collectors. Not sure on what pistons yet. Then a blower to let it breath.

I'm thinking 2500 stall in transmission.
