What size of Pro Magnum Hydrulic Roller Comp Cam?

I need to know what size of Comp Pro Magnum Hydraulic Camshaft to choose for my 383 small block Chevy engine. This cam will be used for street use almost all of the time and it will be going on a 1957 Chevy Truck. So far I have a set of Dart Iron Eagle Cast Iron Platinum Heads with 200cc runners and 72 combustion chambers, Eagle 3.75 Forged Crankshaft, Eagle 5.7 H Beam Connecting Rods, Dart Kool Can Intake, and Speed Pro Forged Pistons. Which Comp Pro Magnum Hydraulic Camshaft and rocker ratio would be the best set up for this engine gentleman? Thanx in advance.

Get something with around 230o @ .050". Get the most lift you can with that duration. A 112o lobe sep. will work well.

Edelbrock retrofit hydraulic roller camshaft #2201 (296/300 Adv. Dur.; 234/238 @ .050; .539/.548 lift w/1.5s; 112 lsa installed @ 107 intake CL) - ($220 at Summit) ; Howard's retrofit hydraulic roller lifters #91114 - Page 23 on their catalog (About $300 when I bought them a year ago). This cam idles well and has a great powerband, especially in my 383 SBC .
