Its pretty simple. You have a good 400SBC engine for your purpose, that has a VERY POOR cylinder head on it and a cam that is way too small.and low compression..It will be 100+++hp LESS than it could be.

You have 300hp LOW PERF parts on it. Don't expect more than what it is.
it is going to to be pretty lame and not much fun.

That won't change until you change things.
