Default 460 build for '66 F100 SWB


I would like to ask for some input on my 460 build going into a '66 F100 Shortbed.

Here is what i have to work with:

.040 460
Stock pistons w/bathtub reliefs in middle
C8VE heads w/stock valve sizes 2.09/1.65
Aftermarket timing chain
Can use Edel Performer or Performer RPM Have both

Truck weighs about 3500 lbs with a 29" tire
C6 trans stock converter
3.70 rear 9"
Power steering and brakes

I plan on cruising it around town, maybe pull a trailer to the swap meet and maybe some strip time.

Question is I have been looking at Comp Cams and see either their XE 262 or XE 274 looks good. I plan on buying all new valve train with this as well:

guide plates
rocker studs
rocker arms (Comp Cast AL roller rockers)

Any input is appreciated to help with the cam selection.
