Default 2004 Foreman 450s mud racer build

Hey guys I have been riding this quad stock for a wile now and it started smoking as soon as it hit 5,000 miles (it got water in the oil somehow). but seeing that i need to go ahead and do a full rebuild on it I'm going to go ahead and make it a top runner in the 500cc class at the mud pit. I know what all you can do to a car motor to build power because i grew up in a racing family but i need to know what is best for this little 450. I want to have the head shaved and bigger valves in it but I'm not sure how far to go with them or if its possible. Any advise would be appreciated I am a new member so I'm trying to get this all figured out.

Port and Polish the heads, put a mudbuster cam in it, jet kit, gear reduction. Check out 08Foreman's thread "my little 500". You can see all the stuff he did to his. Also where you from in Ga?
