Default Is my setup 10 second worthy?

My car is a 1988 trans am GTA. It has a race weight of 3440 (with me in it).
Here is the mod list...

-2002 ls1 from a WS6 Trans am
-2002 Gas tank from a WS6 Trans am
-2002 Radiator from a WS6 Trans am
-Ported and Polished Throttle body
-MSD Spark plug wires
-NGK iradium spark plugs
-LS6 Intake manifold
-Hawks 1 3/4" Stainless steel Long tube headers with 3" collectors
-25% Underdrive pulley
-K&N Air intake
-SLP Loudmouth exhaust
-Cats removed
-Air system removed
-Air conditioning removed
-Aluminum Driveshaft From a 2002 WS6 Trans am
-T56 (6speed) Transmission From a 2002 WS6 Trans am
-LS7 Clutch, pressure plate, and Flywheel
-Ws6store short shifter shaft
-Hurst aftermarket shifter
-Skip **** eliminator
-Drill mod performed
-Ford 9" Rearend with 4.11 gear ratio and a Detroit locker
-Drews Crossmember
-Tubular Lower control arms
-Bmr Strut tower brace
-Hellwig front sway bar
-Edelbrock torque arm
-Edelbrock panhard bar
-Weld in subframe connectors
-Eibach 1" Lowering springs
-KYB shocks
-KYB Struts
-Factory Rear WS6 sway bar
-Wonder bar from an Iroc Camaro
-Slp Motor mounts

Right now with those mods it probably makes around 350 RWHP, it traps a 112mph right now.

this winter my project is installing a radix magnacharger mp112 (innercooled). ill be upgrading the injectors to 60#'s. Ill be swapping in an ls6 cam. The pulley will be a 2.9. I should be making around 500 hp.

are there anythings I should change? I was thinking about ditching the 1" loweing springs and putting the stock ones back on. Ill be getting rid of my UD pulley, strut tower brace (wont fit).

usually takes about 450-500 rwhp (depending on raceweight and suspension mods) to get to the 10s in most f-bdoy, the power seems like it will be there the rest is up to you

+1. At your weight 10's are simply a traction issue. Aim for 1.6 60' times and you should be golden. That, however, is easier said than done: your setup doesn't hook very well based on your video: and it should hook hard with what you've got. Don't waste your time, just take it to a good shop that has experience in the third gen area.
