New car. New engine. New to BBF help

How's it going guys. First post here I'll try to make it short

I'm picking up a solid 69 fastback that needs a drivetrain. I also have a killer deal lined up on a basically brand new drivetrain

The drivetrain is as follows

472 stroker
dove heads ported to match
1100 carb
Dominator intake
Comp cam 736 lift solid roller
Knife edge crank billet
11:1 Manley pistons
700+ hp

Hugh Stevens c4 race tranny

This drivetrain was built to make power on the strip However I will be using it more for street use and a handful of track days a year

I need help on which cam and valve springs I should go with .reliability is important as well

With the above info if anyone can recommend a good converter that would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

The guy that has the motor also took it apart some to show potential buyers the condition. While doing that I was informed that the "oil guides " where the pushrods go into. were flipped (o shaped cutout exposed) this didn't cause issues while running and oil pressure was good (1500 miles and 2 passes). I just don't know if this could be something detrimental in the future when I buy it down the road. I was told they can be flipped and I will be fine. But id figure is ask here.
