If you are considering other platforms, for about half the price (based on looking at one core lab's prices) of the 454 data you could run only Pacific Biosciences and almost certainly get a superior assembly.

How many strains are you sequencing & what are you estimating for the full cost per strain (library prep, sequencing) on Ion Torrent? On PacBio, your genome should be <$700 each.
