Best cam size for my 327 with AFR 180cc heads?

I have a 327 currently with vortec heads. I plan on putting on AFR's 180cc Eliminator Street heads and swapping out the cam for a bigger one. I plan on keeping the compression under 10:1, and was hoping for 400 hp or more. Just curious as to which cams you might recommend.

The car is a 1967 camaro, 3.50 gears and a 700r4 tranny, 9 inch rear, I don't know which torque converter because the guy I bought the car from knew very little mechanical info on the car.

I'm assuming now that you've read my other post containing engine specs too. Also, I had read that stock vortec heads could only handle up to around .450 or .460 lift cams.

On the pistons, I was just assuming they were flat tops because once again, he knew hardly any mechanical info on the engine, but they could just as well be domed pistons. I just haven't got around to nor did I plan to tear the engine down unless I were to swap heads and a cam. The engine is a fresh rebuild also, according to the guy it was rebuilt 2 years ago.

Also, I don't see this engine as having that low of compression as it needs 91 octane and pings if you jump into it too quick, although I do have the ignition timing advanced and I haven't checked the cam timing but he could've had it advanced also.

With my current setup, should I use the rpm over the eps?
