Cam for a 6

Can anyone recommend a good street cam for a Daily driven Chevy 194 6 in a Nova wagon? The engine is mostly stock but I will be getting a 2bbl progressive carb and dual exhaust in the future.

Another guy recommended a cam he had in his 194 years ago. He described it as having 256 advertised duration and .488 lift. The cam was no longer being made but I could use those numbers as a guideline. Always a fan of second opinions I wanted to hear what had to be said here.

thats almost the same as what i got from crane... but i have a 250.the lift my cam has is 467/498 lift., and 248/260 duration..
advertised duration @ .050 is 192/204.
it might be a bit too much for a 194... its bordeline for a 250. make sure whatever cam u get u degree it in... when i got mine, after degreeing it in, i had to buy an offset key to get the power where i wanted it...

I see you went with a split as opposed to a single profile cam. Will leaving the exhaust valve open longer help scavenge the gas out better?
