Try a Competition Magnum Cam and Lifters Set. I have the Magnum 270 Hydraulic Cam and the car pulld hard with a fairly smooth idle.

At worst you can always add a vacuum reservoir and only run a 9" booster.

Re: need help with cam selection for 383

depends on how you drive the car. 200CFM is usually the choice.
