Budget Sbc Build

Hey Guys, back again, this time im doing a budget 400 build for my nephew.
This is by no means a race engine, high performance build, but simply a budget build for my nephew with decent power and good torque. I know there are a lot of sbc 400 builds but im looking for possible HP/ torque numbers. Here is what we are going with:

817 2 bolt block w/ arp main bolts
Cast crank 10/10
Resized rods w/ arp bolts
cast pistons
Balanced assembly
LUNATI 227/233 @ 50 (268/276) voodoo cam/lifters
Professional products air gap intake
EQ Heads(180cc) ported and polished
Flowtech long tubes 1 5/8
2 1/2 full exhaust w/ flowmaster 40 series
Turbo 350( 2200 stall)
Stock rear gear for now.

Was looking for comments/advice on this build. Not trying to put together a race car but a strong car a teenager. Hoping for a nice street car with some get up And go. Thanks in advance for comments/help and advice.
