Default Best options for my 89 780 Bertone?

I'm new to Volvo's and recently picked this car up for $900. For the sake of simplicity I'm thinking of rebuilding the stock engine with this master rebuild kit. I've done SOME research to try to educate myself but there is a lot to learn. Where can I find performance rebuild parts for this engine (B230FT), and what manual transmission will be easiest to swap/pair with this engine? So far sans the manual swap I've had a shop quote me around 2k for the rebuild which seems about right. My power goals are around 300-350HP, and I'll take criticism on how I can achieve that!
