This is my choice for my 350.

Good idle, good vacuum, largest available without going to a higher stall converter. Good torque and midrange power. Available at Checker for $119 cam and lifters kit.

Since the Vortec has a fairly poor flowing exhaust port you should use a dual pattern camshaft.I would go with a CompCams XE262H or the XE268H.

If you had an automatic I would go with the XE262H without question.This is because of the compression.You need about 9-9.5:1 to get really good bottom end with it.

The XE268H will need a little more to get really good bottom end with an automatic,about 9.5-10:1.

But since you have a 4spd and 4.10's there is no sense of even preaching about the need for bottom end.

The XE268H should very work well.The reason that I would go with the XE268H is that with a 4spd you tend to rev the motor out more in daily driving and this will provide you with some top end poop which you will need with the 4spd.
