Plans laid out, oh yeah! Start small and work your way up. The Z6 is a good platform and I've learned a lot in the time I've had mine. Headwork you can keep VERY mild with your power goals. For what you're looking for, you'll need only clean up the casting defects from the ports, just to smooth them over. Port matching is optional, and both procedures are only if you feel so inclined. I went with a CX Racing kit and with all I've done, came very close to 350 to the wheels. It's not the greatest performer at low RPM, but she screams from 5k up.
With your goals in mind, you'll honestly be fine with a stock head, standard valves, and stock cam. If you want to toss a simple cam/spring set, look for the K59300 comp cam kit. Comes with the cam, crower single springs, titanium retainers, and is between 550 and 650 bucks, depending on where you get it. Then you can clean up your ports a little, maybe polish the combustion chambers.
The CX kit, you WILL have fitment issues. You're gonna need an angle grinder and welder on standby. Lol! A few minor obstacles to overcome, but easy enough if you're the patient type.

It sounds like a good plan. You might find it easier than you think to piece together a turbo kit. You have the time since you plan on being N/A for a bit. These are fun cars for sure.
