350 or 383 for 1963 Chevy Truck

I am working with an engine builder on a motor for my 1963 chevy truck.

My options are a 350 with 400 crank shaft which will put it up to a 383 and approximately 420 HP.

Or, I can go straight 350 which will produce about 375 HP. The pricing difference is about $1500.

Will I miss the difference in HP if I go with the 350?

My installer is suggesting a 350 Turbo Transmission. Thoughts on the 350 Turbo versus a 700 R4 and how would each help my dilema on on different motors?

Thanks in advance for some thoughts.
