1996-2000 vortec block build

i have a STREET car 69 chevelle,1975 305,(29-3200 stall convertor) th400, and 3.73 rear.
I am on a budget, looking to put a 350 in with up to 400hp and torque. The late model vortec engines have a stronger bottom end than the earlier style engines.
Now, I dont have to get the motor to my hp and torque goals right away. At this point, I want that 305 out of my car. So Im looking to just put the motor in with a stronger bottom end. Then down the road change the top end.I can transfer parts from the 305 to this motor. My question is will a 1996-2000 vortec engine, be the right choice for a good foundation? Finding a remanufactered long block should be easy.
Also does it have mechanical fuel pump provisions?
