For a daily driver, I would focus more about reliability, off-idle transitions, and low/mid range power.
I would start with some good machine work. The bores need to be straight with a good finish, the mains need to be straight, the decks need to be parallel and flat.
A single plane intake will be perfectly fine with EFI, but I would venture far away from a cam with tons of overlap and higher rpm capability with a daily driver engine. Falcon's cam specs would be where I would start. Around a 230 degree duration at .050" will get you 6000-6200 and will still keep you happy on the bottom end with a longer LSA and advanced cam timing. Depending on how good of a tuner you are (or have), I would focus more on the 110-112 LSA range and run a good bit of advanced cam timing.
I'd also cc the heads so you know where you stand. Some of these old heads have been cut a mile and they can be misleading. 10:1 on the street with pump gas shouldn't be too bad.
