Cam selection

Ok so if you were following my last thread i was building a 350 for nitrous. Ive since abandoned that and am building a 383 all motor.

Im planning on these heads:
Assault Racing Complete SBC Small Block Chevy Aluminum Cylinder Heads Angle Plug 350 383 400 - KMJ Performance
I already ordered this Rotating Assembly at .040:
Assault Pro Series 383 Balanced Rotating Assembly - KMJ Performance

Now that setup should give me around 10.5:1 according to the chart on the Rotating assembly page. With that said i THINK im looking for a cam in the 233 Degree @ .050'' on the intake side. Does that sound right? If i run something better then pump gas is it beneficial to increase this? This is a track only car so no worries on gas mileage etc. Just looking for power.

Heres the cam i was looking at:
SBC 234/.533 242/.548 112+4 OE Hydraulic Roller Camshafts - KMJ Performance

Any help is much appreciated.
