Want to rebuild my 10 bolt

I am thinking about rebuilding my 10 bolt rear end from my 71 camaro. I would like to put a 3:73 gear ratio in. I have a 350 engine, pretty worked, maybe 400 plus horsepower. The cam is a z-cam with a max 6400 rpm range. I have a 2300-2500 stall speed converter and transmission is a strong turbo 350 .. I am pretty sure the rear I have in it is stock and non-posi.(Will check codes on rear) The question I have is, Would I need to replace axles or are the ones I have strong enough. Also, what else should I do to it so it will handle the torque and horsepower? Can I put a posi in it? If I can get away with getting the parts for under 500 hundred, maybe 300, that would be excellent. I dont want to bust my but with this.How long will it take to complete , if I have everything I need? Would like to be prepared and avoid any surprises, Any help is greatly appreciated. God bless
