what camshaft to use

I'm rebuilding my 99 7.3. Ford overhaul kit ,rebuilt heads, head studs, T500 HPOP, garret ball bearing turbo, ebv delete, stage 1 or 2 injecters (didn't decide yet),PHP chip. When I took it apart I found the can was bad should I put a stock camshaft in (fords list cost is $630) or put a gear head performance stage 1 camshaft in for $525 plus new pushrods and valve springs. I use the truck mostly for towing 10000 to 12000 lb. Any other modifications that I should do while the truck is apart? Thanks for any input

I'd use the stock cam, put Stage I's in it, a new Mellings LPOP, and a Fluidampr

I want a cam from Matt in my truck, but if my truck was stock I would run that. Seems to be more of an upside to a cam when you are pushing more power.
