It'll all swap over, but a set of bigger imjectors, larger maf and throttle body would do it wonders.

Just make sure that the 347 is externally balanced to suit the 50oz. balancer and flywheel.
Otherwise your may have trouble sourcing a flexplate...

You could go a long way if you spend the time educating yourself and getting a good understanding of how everything works.
