83 engine upgrade help please

A while back, along with long tube headers, I replaced my factory intake and 4 barrel with Edelbrock 289 Performer intake and 600 cfm carb (I'm already at the hood clearance maximum).
I want to put in a cam and aluminum heads without breaking the bank.
Edelbrock has affordable E-street heads and they recommend their 2122 cam, but the idle is nearly as smooth as factory.
Has anyone tried the 5022 Edelbrock or CompCam XE262H with this setup?
My concern is E-Street heads call-out a maximum valve lift of .550" and the XE262H exhaust is at .50"
