377 vega street car

I've got a '72 vega with a basicly stock 350 that i used for mock up. It also has a full man. turbo 350 with a tci 241000 converter [advertised stall 3000-3400, not sure what it is in a light car aprox. 2800lbs.] and a narrowed 12 bolt with 4:56s. I'd like to use my edelbrock str-10 crossram on it, but not a must i just like the retro and wow factor. Any way i was originally thinking of doing a 383 or 406 but i'm afraid that the low end torque and steep gear the car will = no traction. Also with this set up [383 or 406] i don't think the 5500-6000 rpm range would work well with the 456s and i really don't want to change gears again. I would like to take the car to the track once in a while and i dont think it would run through the 1/4 under the 6000 rpm limit. I thought the 377s lower bottom end grunt would get the car moving before getting in it's power range and would have plenty of rpm to run down the track. What do you think/suggest? Thanks, Todd.
