If they have you may want to consider a Comp Cams 270HR roller cam with 218* duration @0.050" lift single pattern, w/.500" valve lift w/1.5:1 ratio rockers. Using Comp's Camquest software with your engine specs it indicates 404HP, and 463ftlbs of torque. You can get a few more rpm with the XR270HR to get 411HP and the same 463ftlbs with a slight loss of torque off idle.
Both should work good with your torque converter IMO. You may want to upgrade your valve springs.
Thanks. I was looking at that exact cam (270HR) too. My heads are NOT currently setup for the higher lift, but I'm leaning that way. May as well do it while it's apart.
