You'll need an aftermarket block. What do you want to do. Pretty easy to get 600 hp from a 496 with a stock block. I have one.

You will not be able to get 570 out of a stock 454 block.
I would recommend the Dart big M which is what I used  for my last 632. I still had to do some grinding for rod clearance but it was minimal. It also has splayed 4 bolt caps and is better in many ways than the stock block.
Here are a couple of pix of it. Note how it also has the boss for the extra head bolt if you use aftermarket heads that have that bolt provision.
