383 stroker or 355 build advice please

Hi I plan on building a 383 stroker or 355 (not sure which) from a 1980 corvette L82 4 bolt main block I picked up for next to nothing. I am shooting for around 400 hp (overkill?)nothing crazy not planning on racing or anything like that. I just want a nice cruiser that I can take to work sometimes and drive on weekends. Here is the build I have in mind for either the 383 or 355

-Edlebrock rpm performer heads PN 60619 70cc Combustion Chambers, 185cc Intake Ports

-Xtreme Energy XE268H, Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft Lift: .477''/.480'' Duration: 268/280

-Edelbrock 1806, 650 CFM Carb

-1 5/8 hedman long tube headers

-Performer RPM intake

So far the only thing i have for this build is an engine block. I want to this cheap as possible as well. I would like this engine to run on 87 octane if possible. I am interested in those heads because I was able to find a good deal on some locally but also considered getting a set pf junkyard vortec heads. I dont have any ideas for a bottom end yet.The 70 C10 has a 700r4. I Please let me know with any ideas suggestions ect I am not an engine builder but I want to build this one lol.
