71 SBC 350 build question/opinions - also new - Hi

First off let me say hi - new to the forum.
I have a question or more like seeking opinions on my build. Bear in mind that this truck is almost a daily driver and occasionally tows a bass boat. Doing this on a semi budget, currently the heads and carb I am flexible on as I will buy a set - and maybe a new carb.
Let me list as much of the details as possible - Curious as to what kind of horse power I can expect and if you all think it's a decent package.
Vehicle: 1971 Chevy Cheyenne C10, 1/2 ton 2 wheel drive
Transmission: TH350 with 2000-2200 stall.
motor: 71 350 4 bolt main - .20 bore
Crank/Rods - stock .10 over
Cam - Comp Hi Energy 268/268 454/454 - 110 deg lobe separation
Pistons: Flat Top, 4 valve relief, Hypereutectic Aluminum, 5cc
Hei Distributor
Intake: Edelbrock Perform
Carb: 650 Holley
Exhaust: Headers, duals, 40 series flow masters.
Heads: 72cc Chamber heads, cast iron, 165cc intake runner volume, 2.02 intake, 1.60 exhaust. (Summit)

Ok, that should cover it.. Do you think these heads will be decent for what I have bearing in mind - daily driver. Is there anything that doesn’t go well here? Intake? Carb? Etc…

Thank you in advance.
