Is it worth modifying my LT-1 in my camaro z28 with it's mileage?

Hi I just bought a 1994 camaro z28 that's in pristine condition and always kept in the garage. The problem is the engine has 98,000 miles and I'm just guessing but I'm figuring it's lost probably 20 HP and Torque off it's original stock 275 HP and 325 Torque. Therefore I was wondering would it be better to re-build/buy another first before installing a head and cam that would boost me up to 450 HP and Torque or would I still get close to the same numbers.....?

Well it all depends on the condition of your piston rings.
But you gotta figure, if you want to do heads and cams, your just 2 steps away from pistons :tongue:
