Angry Chevy 350?

I am pulling a 350 out of a 78' buik and I am planning to rebuild it and use it in a kit car. I am a little unsure exactly what it is. Is this a chevrolet 350? Do I use chevrolet internal parts for this engine? I look around and see parts for chevrolet-ford-chrysler. I am confused. I am an ameture and want to learn. I know my way around a v-8 but I have never torn into one. PLEASE HELP! I was thinking of the Edlebrock RPM performer package but witch one?????

EDCROOZER IS CORRECT about the cast #s.
you can go to one of many sites to help you ind out what you have.
I use this one myself http://www.mortec.com/castnum.htm

this site can also help you figure out what you have for heads if they are factory cast ones.

hope this helps.

Question

Ok, Distributor is in the front.... Cast number is 1241748. Where can I find the numbers on the heads? Is it going to be hard to find parts for this cast?
