The 460 has a lot of room to grow, a stroker kit to boost the displacement will be the first best step. From there, a good head/cam/intake combo should get you around 650 with no problem.

The block has potential, the heads...not so much, unless you have SuperCobraJet or Boss429 heads. Invest in good aftermarket heads first, and if the torque curve isn't broad enough, throw a stroker kit under those heads.  going the opposite way, well...  
Just because you can't do it...doesn't mean its impossible

see engine masters chalanges, you'll get alot of the dynomatched info that will really help.

off the top of my head. ball park.
would be a great set of aftermarket heads. ask for flow numbers before you buy.
i tried to research them for you but no real luck.
edelbrock performer rpm heads flow decently.
couple those with a 248@ intake degree camshaft or bigger, i prefer a roller, if you can get one. with over .550" lift
run minimume of 10.5:1 compression, i think i'd go with 11:1.
large 2" or 2-1/4" primary pipe headers, a great freeflow exuast.lets try for dual 3" or single 4.5" exuast.
almost 1000cfm carb at 7500rpm.
a big freeflow air filter.
i assume pump gas.
3000rpm+ converter stall.
single plane intake. hi rise.

hell nitrouse would get you way over the top real easy.
so would forced induction, if your interested in something more streetable.
