good cam for vortec heads

hi guys i have spent lots of time reading from this message board, but this is my first time posting anything. so i hope i am doing this right

well i am in the process of getting together all the parts needed to do some work to my motor currently i have 350 tbi pretty much stock.

I ordered a set of aftermarket vortec heads from ebay the specs are:
64cc COMBUSTION CHAMBER
185cc INTAKE RUNNERS
2.02 STAINLESS STEEL INTAKE VALVES
1.60 STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST vALVES
SPRINGS GOOD TO .600 LIFT
i already have the intake and have the rocker arm problem figured out. i was just wondering what cam i should go with. summit sales the edelbrock 2204 for a good price the specs are

Duration at .004" Lift: Intake 296 Exhaust 300
Duration at .050" Lift: Intake 234 Exhaust 238
Lift at cam: Intake .359" Exhaust .365"
Lift at valve: Intake .539" Exhaust .548"
Timing at .050 Lift: Open Close
Intake 10 BTDC 44 ABDC
Exhaust 56 BBDC 2 ATDC
Centerlines: Int: 107 ATDC Exh: 117 BTDC
Lobe Separation: 112

so my question is would this cam work ok with these heads? has any one tried it before? and what other cams would you guys recomend?
any input would be greatly appreciated

Re: good cam for vortec heads

It would be easier for people to help if you gave some more info. What car, transmission, rear end gear ratio, what motor they will go on, whats your goal with the car? Things of that nature.

Re: good cam for vortec heads

my uderstanding is that you have to use either roller rockers or screw in studs and guide plates. the heads i have are modified for screw in studs and guide plates so i think i just need to get hardend pushrods and i should be good.

i have a edelbrock performer rpm vortec intake
