If I was in your position,I would do the heads last.( 68 Camaro is my favourite car from that era.)I had a 67 Camaro with a 350 back in the day,unfortunately it was stolen.The turbo 350 is a straight bolt in but still has the same high gear ratio so 3.55 gears or so will be your limit if you plan to highway drive on occasion. With O/D you can use more rear gear and still have some economy. AFR heads can support over 500 hp and it looks like you need to do other things first,do you intend to upgrade to a 12 bolt diff? If so what about posi trac and better axles? Are the sub frames tied or do you intend to tie them?Im not trying to discourage you in any way just get things done in correct order. If you only want a perky 380 hp engine,you dont need the AFR heads. vortec heads or above mentioned rpm heads are fine
