Hello and welcome,

To give you anything close to a valid answer we really need a lot more information. Stuff like, what car is it in/going in to? What's the overall condition of the engine? What are you planning to do with the car and how are you going to be driving it?

etc.

A Pontiac 400 in a chevy? I'd pay money just to see a picture of that

Someday I'm going to run a Pontiac engine in a 69 Camaro just to tick people off

I'm getting the impression that you're more into just having it sound good as opposed to actually making a lot more power (there's a vast difference in cost between the two). If that's the case, pick a cam that has a tight lobe separation angle (110 degrees or less) and around 230 degrees duration at .050 lift. If you go too extreme on the duration it'll kill the vacuum (and your power brakes along with it).

IF your 400 has the stock 670 heads, it won't be a pump gas friendly engine. Compression is too high. A great all around cam for the 400 is the factory '068' grind. Friendly on the valvetrain, and good for low end and mid range power, which you need in that big heavy Chevy. Saw a '69 Ram Air III 400 out of a GTO installed in about a 1973 Ford pickup at a wrecking yard a few years back. Looked like it was born there.
