Engine Swap Help!!!

I recently purchased a 1986 Camaro IROC-Z, Z28. It has a 305 TPI engine with a 700R4 trans. I have a carbuerated 355 built for another project that I want to put into this Camaro now. The motor in the Camaro is the stock 305 190hp TPI engine (not the H.O). The 355 is a 350 bored .030 over, with a mild cam, 2.02 fuelie heads, pete jackson gear drive, torker 2 intake, & holley 600 cfm carb. My questions are:
Should I convert the car over to run the 355 carb. motor or swap the intake & heads off the 305 to make a TPI 355?

How would the TPI swap affect my compression, hp, and performance?

Any and all info. and comments would be appreciated.
