B&M or TCI or red eagle?

Should I get a B&M kit in box, TCI or Red eagle clutches for my th350? Also do kolene steels and kevlar band do much. I am getting a hardened sprag. I have a 350 that has around 500hp 100-75hp beeing nitrous. Anything else I need, like low reverse roller sprag and intermediate roller? I get my books tomorrow. First time build.

Here's a parts list that I used for a 4L60E that I recently built for my '95 Corvette w/ approximately 450/500 HP/TQ. It's performed flawlessly thus far. I hope this is of some help for your TH350.
The list was comprised for me by a GM tranny guru whom I trust completely.

For a 500+ lb-ft of torque engine:
Alto red clutch kit with Kolene steels.
Kevlar bands
29 element Borg-Warner sprag
Borg-Warner lo-roller clutch
stock 10 vane pump
stock 4 pinion planetaries
Beast reaction shell
Corvette servo
Transgo shift kit
reverse piston orifice
high rev sping kit with hardened pump rings
white accumulator springs
.471 boost valve
O-ring style lo reverse boost valve (Sonnax brand)
Transgo separator plate

Stuff that is not in a basic rebuid kit, but you will likely need:
(A lot of these parts are inexpensive from a GM dealer)
pwm solenoid
lock up solenoid
pump vanes
new front seal retainer
new accumulator pistons
bushing kit
thrust washer and selective washer kit
servo check ball capsule
