Go with an aftermkt S/R type head. Use a mild Hydraulic lifter cam with short duration and high lift. A set of new rocker arms. 1.5 ratio is fine. A Performer type intake and a 600-750 Vac. secondary carb.

knowing the gear is sort of critical, but if its not an SS its most likely around a 3.08.... if thats the case, are you planning on staying with that gear...or up it to say a 3.42 ?
Part of the reason I ask is cam selection, you can still make good power, but with 3.08s, youll want to stay more conservative.

If it were me Id either use the SportmanIIs or Vortecs(dont forget ,vortec requires a dedicated intake, self aligning rockers & centerbolt valve covers) for heads.
for camshafts(assuming a flat tappet hydrulic) my first choice would be: Schneider racing cams grind # LSP-1H Specs: duration 214/224 @ .050
lift .440/.460 112LSA
or
Speed-Pro # CS1013R specs:
duration 214/224
lift .445/.465 112LSA
For an intake Id use either an Edelbrock Performer or Weiand Action +
For a Carb Id either use a nicley prepped Qjet, or a 570 Holley Street Avenger( would most likely work best with a 1" open spacer), or a 600 CFM carb of your choice( Iprefer Holley over Edelbrock/carters).
Ill assume you plan to put headers & 2.25" exhaust.
you should easily make your 350 HP with that compression, & should be very torky right out of the hole.

oh, by the way, this will be a motor to run within 5500 RPMs.

roller rockers do help, Im not a fan of aluminum rollers for daily drivers though, unless there good quality like Harland sharp, but there pricey. The Comp Pro magnum stainless rockers are bullet prove, not the cheapest, but I say pay now, or wish you did later.
You can find Schneider cams by going to there website( there not the cheapest). I know Northern Automotive carrys Speed-Pro Cams, & very reasonable prices,They also have a website.

Mighty, both well be fairly smooth, but lotsa torque, with a 3700 LBS. Monte carlo with 3.08s in a daily driver you want torque, lumpy cams generally dont give a bunch of torque, or vacuum for that matter.
