which cam for a street/strip 383

As some of you mentioned i called about some cam recomendations.
here is what it's going in:
385cid (.040 over 383)
10.3:1 compression
i have a victor jr and a performer rpm intake
4779 750 DP
still up in the air whether to keep my DART 200cc iron heads or if i want to buy set of DART 215 cc pro 1's
TH350/ 3500 10" stall
4.10's with drag radials (29x10 slicks when i run it)
howards 1.6int/ 1.5exh roller lifters.
I will be buyng a set of directl lube lifters, likely Howards 91137 lifters

here are the solid roller cams:
110753-10 245/255 277/287 110 .600/.600 (3200-7400) Howards

111153-10 246/250 284/292 110 .582/.580 (2500-6700) Howards

12-771-8 242/248 280/286 110 .570/.576 (2500-6500) Comp

12-772-8 248/254 286/292 110 .576/.582 (3000-7000) Comp

i really dont want to spin the motor past 6500 rpm, and the techs recomended these cams. the Howards tech thought the 245/255 would best suit my set up. and the Comp tech thought the 248/254 would best suit my set up.

What do you think?
