85 el camino rear end choices

Hi I have an 85 el camino ss that I just put a 305 in it. It has around 300hp and I want to put a beefy rearend in it. The stock gears are like 273's and I would like to put 4.11's in a 9" rear end in it. I know it ain't much hp but I am going to put a 520hp 377 sbc in it at a later time. I am going to build this car for limited street use and would like to race it. Any opinions on this setup would be great. The 9" is a direst bolt in from jegs made by currie. Does this sound like a good move for my setup?

Sounds like the best rear to use. Easy gear changes.

Check out speedway motors for a rear you can get a floater 9 inch minus gear for around 600 to 700 and weld on the brackets they sell. Or if welding isn't your thing they sell housings already with the brackets installed as well.
