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

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
I would also go with a solid as suggested here but with your low compression and mild heads I'm guessing a slightly smaller one would better suit your needs.
BTW having your lifters reground is almost the same cost as buying a new set.
Down the road I would also get the 3.54 gear set for the R200. 4.11 is a little steep for your weight and first gear ratio, also a 3.54 will lower your highway RPM some- nice for long cruises.
