What’s a good timing set to run in a 450-500ish HP 401?

Hi quality, cams consistently degree in where they are supposed to, rear of cam gear has a 360* channel for oil to flow through to the dist gear so its idiot proof, price is reasonable, readily available.

I bought Milodon, which is re-branded SA Gear, the oil passage in the back of the cam gear was missing, easily fixed, but a trap for the unwary.
