Solid flat tappet is the only way to fly if you can't budget a roller cam set-up.

How much are you willing to lighten the car??, that will make the most difference and allow you to not have to go so radical with the engine. 6.50's in the 1/8th = 10.20 in the 1/4, it isn't going to be stupid easy to go that quick with only 347 cubes. Don't happen to have a 351W around to stroke, do you?? It would make it easier with the car at stock weight.
what cam would you reccomend
