Edelbrock could help you get the setup with the right stuff. Just give them a call.

You have got a massive amount of choices for cams. Edelbrock has shorten this down to a few good choices. Makes the selection easier.

Or listen to people who have done it, built it, cruised it, raced opposed to calling someone with a product to peddle.....that's the drawback to calling edelbrock, sure, you can buy a top end package, which is exactly what their going to reccomend, or you can mix and match, spend time and effort, not money, on something you did yourself with a little help from "real" people who understand budget and reality.....
