305 to 454 swap on camaro

Hello Guys,

Recentley I bought a 1985 Camaro with a stock engine LG4 (standard) and Manual G/B T5 Borg Warner. I am thinking of swapping the engine with a 454 big block. Is this possible to be done? Are there any tips of upgrading/supporting the chassis due to the increase weight?
Can someone give me some tips of what to do?

Thanks Very much.
