Sounds like you will be busy for awhile. But also sounds like it will be alot of fun. Good luck with your builds.

What are your exact plans for your truck will dictate the proper way to build it.
If you are wanting to turbo the motor things are a whole lot different then if you want to go naturally aspirated.If it is a driver and to be a little different look at the 305 TPI (works with turbo as well) with a 700R4 which will give you the best of both as in great take off(3.06 first gear) and the overdrive with the lock up but this is just one little idea and it is your truck but i do like that you are looking for info to compile and then make a decision.As for the rear end that is up to your intended purpose of the truck.Just a clue i built a 82 S10 with a 305 stock other than a marine cam 700R4 and it averaged 32 mpg on the highway.More later if you want.
