Headers won't work, but you should be able to sell them and have enough $$$ to get a used pair of ford headers and the GM flanges. 302 headers will work, but 351w swap headers usually have the 1 3/4 primaries which would be almost perfect for a mild combo.

3:73 is about right with most tires, but a 3:55 will work too. I wouldn't go to all the trouble of changing them out unless you're after every last tenth in a drag race.
