If it was my car I would change at least 3 items
If your carb is a 4778 that would be first,the 4779 works better
you should have a newer HP design with removable air bleeds
2) I would use an open plenum intake

3)110102-06 CL110102-06
CL110102-06DL (3) 275 281 240 246 .505 .520 106 102 .022 .022 1,3
something like this
I would not use a hydraulic flat tappet in a sports car

with 4.11 gears and 3.35 first gear I see first gear as useless in a sports car
your top speed(making power) is 35 mph with a flat tappet hydraulic
the solid would get you to 42 mph,,26 1/2 tire
If you road race,not many corners have you slow to 30 mph even in a hairpin so first gear has no use in your application
my first gear allows me to go 55 mph in first,as an example

If you drag race,the solid lifter cam will get you by the tree in 1st gear
