What needs to be done just to make it hold up with 450hp?

Replace it with a C-4.

Seriously, you will need several HD hard parts and perform several modifications especially to the valve body and lubrication areas. Is this something you plan on tackling yourself?

Yes, I was planning on doing it myself. The parts for these trannies are expensive though.

The C4 that I have is a 68 with 24 spline. If I rebuild it, what would it take to install a stronger input shaft?
