Default Which Camshaft for my 302?

Hey guys new to the forums and was wondering what some of your opinions would be on a camshaft for my application.
The car will be a high performance street machine. It will be driven quite a bit on the street and will see heavy throttling every once in awhile on and off the street. Might see the strip a couple times a year just for fun.
I have:
355 rear gears
4 spd manual wide ratio (1st 3:1 4th .79:1)
76 Ford 302 w/ aluminum heads w/max lift of .550, headers, 600 cfm 4 barrel, and 10.6:1 static compression ratio

I also live in Denver so the car will be in a high altitude situation but I would still like to drive to lower elevations without my engine blowing up.
Which of these camshafts would be best? OR what camshafts do you guys recommend?
Some of the camshafts I was thinking of were:
1. http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=794&sb=2
2. http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=801&sb=2
3. http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=810&sb=2

Email Ed Curtis over at Flowtech (FTI) and get a custom grind. A tad bit more money, but definitely worth it. You can get him to grind something that will work with the springs your heads have, and be really easy on valvetrain parts while making more power.

And he's a genius with SBF cams.

Alright thanks for the reference. Around how much is a custom grind?

Not sure for a flat tappet, but rollers are usually around $350-400. Customs run around $50-100 more than an OTS.

Email Ed and ask.

Thanks. I sent him an email, hopefully he gets back soon.
But in the mean time are there any camshafts out there that aren't custom that you guys would recommend?

He can take a while to get back to his email sometimes, he's always swamped.
