Default Engine Question

My 72 Malivert is using oil and fouling plugs , the engine is a 290 HP crate motor with lots of hard miles on it . I have the original 350 with 55000 miles on it . It did not smoke or foul plugs but did use oil ,my guess from sitting a long time before I bought it . It was a typical 2 bbl engine . My thoughts are to open it up and see what it needs ,maybe put in a Roller Cam w/ roller rockers and aluminum heads and call it a day .

What says you guys with more knowledge than I on motors ? Just doing some planning ,wont happen right away as Im building trucks right now .
