You have the makins for a fine everyday good running motor, go with the performer and the Q-jet (even tho I hate'm), keep it simple, you will have lots of torque to haul that rear gear ratio.

Check your heads (Magnaflux) for cracks between the steam holes and center head bolt holes, check the block between the bores and bolt holes. If you can afford it use the 5.7- 350 rod and proper piston, you will like the better torque and the motor will like the less cylinder wall loading, keep the cam duration short and the lift tall.
