The comp cams H-268 & H-288 (both hydraulic) are pretty ballsy, pull hard and I have seen work well. The best thing to do is email each manufacturers tech centre and get thier recommendation. Thats what I did and bought a Lunati roller for our late model. Remember that the cam manufacturers know more about cam profiles than any of us will ever dream of. They have already been and tried any combination that any of us will ever come up with.
Also remember don't go to big. This is the biggest mistake most people make.

If you have to run hydraulic i would look at COmp Cams Xtreme line, but if you can run solids i would no doubt run a solid lifter. I know guys running a Lunati 40150 in 355 with the same heads etc. and they said it pulls hard and they run it up around 6700. In your 377 it might be a little small depending on rpms though but might be a place to start. Like rocket36 said dont go too big, especially with a lower compression motor like you have.

Do yourself a favor and call Charles at Camcraft. They're a scrolling sponsor at the top of the page. He will want the same info that you've provided and probably more. I put one of his cams in mine this year and I can out horsepower even the better motors. Just because of my cam.

Heard good things about Howards Cams too.
