SBC distributor

I'm building a pretty hot 355.. It has 12:1 TRW pistons, Ported angle plug 492 Double humps, 2.02 160's.. Victor JR, 750 Holley, 560/580 cam.

I plan on setting my rev limiter to 7000 and shifting around 6200.. I have some stock GM distributors sitting on the shelf. I know I have atleast 2 HEI's and one Point style. Can I modify either of them to turn 7000rpm?? I want to be cheap and I already have some distributors. Should I use the point or HEI and what needs to be done so they will hold up to around 6500?? Thanks

Also I just bought this cam off Ebay it said it was a custom grind from Crane. Solid Flat-Tappet.. Specs are 258/268 @50.. 560/580 Lift, 106 Lobe seperation. Do you think I over cammed for 12:1 compression??
