Default School bus engine swap?

I got a 5.7 liter out of a school bus 350hp stock chevy engine. Four Bolt main. I want to put a set of elberbrook heads and 303 cam. Intake, carbed, comp distributor. I wanna put this in my sc400. I am gonna put a true set of dual gt40 flowmasters 3" on it. Have the driveshaft rebuilt, 400 turbo 3 spd stranny.

So whatcha think? Taking measurements to see if i can put a camaro rear end in it?

Looking for 375-425 Horse

In the future after its running, I wanna supercharge it and fuel injected.

The 350 chevy was designed through the ancient art of sacred geometry which has imbued the engine with trans-dimensional properties which allow it to fit in any available space, no matter how large or small. This has led to the universal truism, if it exists, you can put a 350 in it. Starship Enterprise ? There's no warp drive, just a bored and stroked 350 with a 12-71 blower and a 200 shot of nitrous. Your goldfish looking a little sluggish ? A mildly warmed over 350 with a nice cam should wake it up nicely.
