Summit offers some excellent cams. A nice mid level cam would be great fit.

I would think something like what GM had in the stock 300 horse 350's was plenty enough. Sometimes the jobber cams just don't pan out. Having vacuum is important in the Vette to open the head light doors etc , and you could end up with a cam that don't idle worth a darn and have poor vacuum thus poor brakes etc. A Holley spreadbore on a better intake and headers , true dual exhaust will wake the motor up abit without having to dig into the engine.
