picking up a new engine today have some simple ?s

After not being able to track down my masive oil leak and ive given up on that tired 307 im going to be picking up a complete pan to throttle body 96 vortec 350 with about 75k on it from a buddy for 400. i know i need a flywheel and intake for it. but my queston is what cam should i run i just bought a thumper cam from comp because i wanted that rough idle.

my specs for my 79 malibu are as follows

18x10.5 rear wheel with a 265/45/r18 tire

NV3500 5 speed with the 1st:3.49 2nd:2.16 3rd:1.40 4th:1.0 5th:.73

I have a 9" that i will be installing with 3.37 gears that i will be installing

2.5" dual exhaust no cats and 40 series flowmaster

I have 14" wilwood rotors with 4 piston calibers up front and 12"rotors with 4 piston calibers in the rear. i used the factory booster and a aftermarket master cylinder. (can run a vac pump if needed)

i dont drive this car often mostly just to car shows looking for lots of sound dont care about power much
