Default Cam for a carbed GT40P/intake setup

Snagged a set of GT40P heads. Car currently has an Edelbrock Torker II intake on it (have a Weiand Stealth intake I can swap out also) with a Holley 600 vacuum secondary carb.

I cant get a straight answer from anywhere on whats a good cam spec to go with as far as centerline and LSA for a carb. Does anyone know? Just want to make sure the car will have enough vacuum to run well. Be aware, this is not a rowdy engine build, just a street car to have some fun in on the weekends.

A lot of people will throw specs out but picking a cam is a science. When I ordered my stroker motor. Fordstrokers sent me a cam sheet to fill out, they asked about 20 questions. displacement, weight of car, stall speed, type of power adder, etc. I recommend calling a company like comp cams and getting some tech. advice from them.

Well just from what you said off the rip I would get rid of that torker 2 and throw it in the trash and run that weiand stealth, and no one will be able to recommend a cam to you without first knowing weather or not you are running a roller or flat tappet block
