Default cam advise

ok guys heres what i got 77 tank i mean monte carlo car weighs abou 4k 350 bored .060 9.1 ported and polished heads pro form roller rockers th350 gears are im guessing 3.08 (factory) edelbrock performer intake 600 holley cam in it now is designed for circle track racing not real sure on specs think it has 510 lift but dont hold me to it but street drive ablity not too good not hardy any vaccum or at least enough for brakes to operate properly. would like to know a better cam set up for street maybe little fun at track headers and dual exhaust in works. been looking at flow tech loong tube headers any opinion on them would be helpful too

Default CAM

IN MY OPINION, I WOULD TRY A VACUM CANISTER FOR THE BRAKES,,, YOU GO ANY SMALLER ON THE CAM AND IT WILL KILL THE POWER... MY LAST SMALL BLOCK WAS A 538 558 CAM,, I RAN IT ON THE STREET ALL THE TIME... RAN 11.80 1/4 MILE..PUMP GAS.... BUT MAYBE YOUR LOOKING FOR BETTER MILEAGE THAN YOU HAVE,, COMP CAMS 270H WOULD WORK GOOD... GOOD LUCK

main issues are as follows drivablity poor idle quality and vaccum. and as far as power band the can doesnt come in until upper end ( the circle track guys i know build them to hit 7k rpm area) so this cam doesnt "wake up" till around 4700 to about 7000.like the lumpy idle but this too much and need some thing that idle to maybe 6000 or 1500 up area
