The cam from Edelbrock that matches your intake manifold is fine. Keep the compression at 9-9.5-1 and use headers. That ought to get you what you want.

If you're going to keep the stock heads, take a look at the Comp XE series cams. Maybe the XE262H or XE266H.

They build excellent cylinder pressure with stock type heads.

tall order

Getting 350 hp out of a windsor w/ stock heads is nearly impossable, you will need a set of iron after market heads w/ big valves and 180 to 200 cc int runners, those stock head ports are too small, they dont breath, check out ebay they have a bunch of these type heads for sale at real good prices, as far as a cam goes you will need at least .500 lift if not more, and as far as duration goes it really depends on your gears (rear end) if you have short enough gears (370 to 410) you should go with a duration of .230 to .240 @ .050 you will also need the valve springs to match the cam.
Good Luck
