1999 Z28 Build

Ok so basically I'm looking to build a nice high hp Car.

What I have to work with a 1999 Camaro RS/Z28 T-Top Car (LS1&T56) with 190k miles and some piston slap

Basically what I want is a nice DD I'd like to make something reliable and street-able that I can take to the track maybe once a month and put down a decent time.

I would like 600hp but maybe that's a bit much for dd so maybe 500.

I'd like to use and rebuild my stock ls1 and t56 but maybe that's not the way to go. for sure i don't want to use any spray. i'd really like to keep the car naturally aspirated but i may use a turbo or sc.

I have $4k cash to spend but I can add $1k a month.

What are some idea's for my build and should I start the build now wait till I have more saved up?

600HP N/A bulid a 6.0 stroker for it or use a power adder. I have the same goal but I'm only looking for 450 on motor and spraying 150-200.
