That should do, if you don't mind headspeeds of around 2500 or higher (which is perfectly acceptable by the way).

If you want to go lower (for example with a 4 bladed head, to extend flight time) it is a better option to look for a lower kV motor (say, 2800~3000) with a 3.17 mm shaft, so you can fit a smaller pinion (I believe, 10T is the smallest availlable for a 450 size) so you can keep your throttle curve high enough to prevent overheating of the ESC.

But that is just one of the options....
