350 is a very difficult, and expensive, amount of power to achieve if you are trying to stay N/A. Are you planning to boost this motor once you finish building it? Boost will get you closer to your desired numbers for significantly less money.

250-275 whp and excellent traction with decent driving will get you into the 12's.

That can be done fairly easily. Pistons, rods, ARP head studs and a gasket will hold 275whp VERY comfortably provided the tune is decent.

My suggestion is to go with CP pistons. CP uses a different composition in their piston that keeps it from expanding as much as even JE's. Also, pick up a set of tested and true Eagle rods. ARP hardware, and you should be good to go.
