cam & cylinder head recommendation for 434 sbc

Hi, I'm new here, just built a 434 for a street car, looking for a recommendation for cylinder heads and a camshaft. Any help ? Not really sure what to tell you, its a 69 camaro, about 3300 lbs and will drive it on the street mostly, but hope to race it sometimes too.

I would be interested in hearing any recommendations and maybe costs as well if you know them. thanx !!

Need to know a lot more specifics about the rest of the engine before you are going to get any good advice. Intake, exhaust, compression ratio, what expectations you have for it, transmission, converter, rear gears, everything. Your question is so open that 15 different heads and 100's of cams could fit the bill.
MORE INFO!!

compression ratio will be determined by the cylinder head chosen, but with a 64cc head will be a hair over 10-1...... intake is not purchased yet either, but was considering a edelbrock victor single plane, but will pick based upon cam chosen. I have a th350 with several different old converters from TCI.... current one in the car is a 10" converter. Rear gears are just 3.73 at this time, but I will change those eventually. Expectations are to make as much power as possible I guess, but it is a street car.... will be driven a lot, mostly weekends I guess.

But thanks anyway.
