Wait until you have the heads etc. One of the biggest mistakes people make is rushing out and buying a cam
and ending up with the wrong cam for the job. The cam choice is a critical element.
It sets the whole nature of the engine. and how the car "drives".

The Lunati street 401A3LUN solid cam is still a good overall choice for where you're headed.
Its a nice "street cam"
Something in that range is good. possibley with more lift or rocker ratio with the dart heads.
If that is your head choice then they will benefit form some port cleanup as all as cast heads do.
possible Crane F-280-2 cam #114681 (or a custom grind variation of it)
Crane F244/3454-2S-6 possibe single pattern version (crane custom grind)
Lunati solid Voodoo #60141 ( or Lunati custom grind variation)
With what you got (3000 stall) and the purpose I would not go bigger than these cams.
All need a good exhaust system.
use a performer RPM and 750carb

A street tunnel ram + eddy carbs can still work.

These Dart heads come with different spring packages.
"K1 K2 etc" K1 is usually the stock entry level diameter "hyd cam" springs.
Get the spring package that matches your cam choice.

A Voodoo Solid street roller would be cool. Lunati #60132
