'76 sbc build , need more head advice

Thanks Red
How do I tune for Hg,just by changing jets?carb is 1406.I bought a vaccumn gauge, but it'll be awhile before I can get out, still snow here.Frickin tired of it.
When I started planning this car the advise I got,even fron the trany shop was to use a TH350.It is a rebuilt with a stage 1 shift kit, but it doesn't shift stiff.Trany shop now says I need a stage 2 kit.Theres goes $20 in trany fluid if I do anything,grrrr. I didn't know a trany could be tuned to a car??.
AAANNND I don't need the car to do wheelies, I'm trying to do the only comparison I can relate to as to how I think the car should run.MY '02 Malibo is prob faster, but my lawntractor is slower.
I checked shop prices were a bit more here.I'm getting my friends sbc,low miles,doubt it had 5000 miles on it,price is cheap.Rebuilt by a good shop, forged piston & crank,462 heads,valve spring seats cut down etc.He says it has 10:1 flat tops,but never used hi-test gas.It had a 290? 500 cam and a 3500 stall.I don't want that set up.I'm thinking of a Lunati 60102 cam because of cr, stall change maybe.If I didn't just buy the TH 350, I'd prob look at a 700r.
