Cam selection... 383 chevy, vortechs, heavy car...streetable but fun. 400hp-ish

Got a 59 Chevy wagon, putting together a 383 for it. I'm wanting a good 400 or so HP and good torque... almost daily driven rig. I like a good thumpy cam but want it civil as well.

Looking for advice on a roller cam

383 ci
9 to 9.5-1 compression
Vortech heads
Edelbrock performer RPM manifold
Stree Demon 625 cfm
Sanderson cast headers
700r4
1800-2000 stall convertor
3:73 gears w/ 29" tire

Got a buddy happy with his GM 10185071 roller, but he's in another state so I can't check his setup out.

So far...most stuff I've built I've always erred on the side of conservative, and almost always wish I'de gone further.

Any advice appreciated!!
