Help Me Pick A Cam

I putting a new 350 together to put in my ride (1989 Silverado). I have bought quite a few pieces and when funds allow I'll buy the rest. I'd like to ask the pros here as most of the people on the truck forums haven't a clue, here is what I'm using

Brand new GM Performance 4 bolt block (350)
Sealed Power 10.5:1 Forged pistons
Sealed Power rings
ARP Mains studs
7 quart oil pan
Summit high volume oil pump
Pete Jackson gear drive (Quiet)
Streetmaster rods (steel)
Clevite 77 bearings
0.10 under iron crank
6 7/8" Streetdampr
Dart aluminum heads (2.05/1.60) 64cc (need to order)
Comp Cams solid lift cam .555" lift (need to order)
Edelbrock Scorpion single plane intake
Holley 750 double pumper
MSD distributor
MSD 6AL box
MSD multi step retard
MSD blast 3 coil
MSD 2 step

NOS Dual stage cheater

This engine will be coupled to an

API turbo 400 tranny
API 10" 4000 stall
TCI Transbrake

Rear end is a factory 10 bolt with Richmond 4.56 gears and a posi



My last 350 had 12:1 compression, iron bowtie heads (2.02/1.60) Reed .555 solid cam and one one stage of nitrous ran 11.8@115mph



What do you think of this combo and any times?

I'm thinking on either a hydrolic cam or solid lift cam

Hydrolic cam specs

Exhaust 83 42

These Specs Are For The Cam Installed At 110 Intake CL
Intake Exhaust
Duration At 0.05 253 253
Lobe Lift 0.35 0.35
Lobe Separation 110


Or this solid lift cam

Exhaust 87 39

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These Specs Are For The Cam Installed At 106 Intake CL

This looks like a really strong (meaning potent) setup. I assume the goal is to spend a lot of time at the track. But Charlie, are you really sure you want to run all this through a CI crankshaft?? Not meaning to seem negative, but even cranks like a SCAT (cast of steel vs. CI) are limited by manufacturers recommendations to 500HP or so. I've gotta believe you'll blow right through 500 HP. Regarding the cam, for an application like this, I really can't help. Looking for this much power, I think I'd be looking at roller profiles.
