cam suggestion

I am considering a new cam and would like thoughts. Motor is a 355sbc. It has headers and dual exhaust with h pipe, 300-36 holley dual plane intake, trick flow gen 1 aluminum heads with roller rocker arms and eddy 600cfm carb. This is in a 3500lb chevelle, 4 speed richmond transmission and 3.73 gears. Pistons are dished at -12.

Thanks for any help.

How do you want the engine to perform? Are you looking for it to lope? Street car? Strip car? Both? While the 600 carb will work, it`s a tad small.
I pretty much don`t do cam suggestions anymore as I lean to the conservative side. However, you know your compression ratio, your head flow and engine combo very well, then go to comps site, Isky`s site and find a cam that matches your combo. Most companies tell you what compression ratio and other mods they recommend plus gear ratios for the given cam.
