300-400 on N2O is a lot - you might want to ask questions on the nitrous section of the forum - some big time users there.

How fast are you intending to go?

Alot of questions to ask here, where are you located, what do you want to spend, what rpm range is the engine going to see, do you have a vacuum pump on the motor, hydraulic or solid roller, what's in it for components now and if they aren't up to the task are you willing to upgrade, etc.etc.etc.

Your askign WAY too vague of a question to really get a good answer.

Start with a good forged rotating assembly, like this one perhaps:
