Lots of good advice here I agree go with a cam in the .450" lift range its a big displacement small block so it can take more cam with out hurting the low end much. I think your idea of keeping the compression low is a good one, especially if you are looking to run cheap pump gas I'd go between 8.5-9.2 you won't gain that much power with any higher compression and with a shorter duration cam you can get into detonation territory easily. I also agree with keeping the q-jet its hard to beat for the street.
