What combination? What power output? SBC

I am building a motor in my 1978 Camaro. I have a 350 2 bolt main.
My current plan is,
350 .030 over
flat top with 4 relief pistons
stock crank and rods
Vortec heads with .525 lift springs roller tipped rockers, screw in studs, and guide plates
Summit/Edelbrock dual plane intake, stage 1
Camshaft, .500 lift 276,286 duration
Holley 750 carb. no choke
what kind of numbers would I be looking at with this motor?

Or could I use this kit with my other components, since the block is only a 2 bolt?

I personally wouldn't waste money on steel components for a 2 bolt because if you're building an engine that needs steel components, it's most likely going to need 4 bolt mains also. Saying that, the setup you list seems good to me; i think you'll be pleased with that engine.

For what is needed for an accurate estimate run on software, see This thread.

Someone recently mentioned a site that could give a rough estimate- you might find it if you do a search...
