Beefing up my SBC

Ive got a fever and the only perscription is...more engine! Ive been looking at tons of crate engines and parts that ive come to realise a 22 year old guy isnt gonna have any time soon Im sure you guys know the feeling. I figure its time I learn to beef up my little 350. I started looking for some ways to give my 74' Stepside some more get up and go!!! I decided to look into Heads. My trucks my DD so I cant go all out with it. A verry cool guy on this site showed me the RHS Vortecs so im going to be building those. The thing about stock vortecs is they only allow so much cam before you have to have machineing done and beef em up. This made me think since im gonna be assembling heads I should think of what cam I want to run. How do I choose the right cam though? All the sites I see just ask some verry general questions and try to pawn off a cam on me.

350 Sbc

Our shop just dynoed a 358 inch 10.2:1 SBC and made 437 hp @ 6200 rpm. We used the RHS Vortec 170 cc heads (2.02 & 1.6) with some badly needed, simple porting on the exhaust. The intakes are fine out of the box.
