For your daughter to drive where? Strip only, street/strip, daily driver.

Which stock pistons? So as to determine compression ratio for camshaft selection.

C8 heads have a poor intake to exhaust flow ratio, so a cam with the same intake and exhaust duration will not let the cylinder blow down sufficiently at higher RPMs. IMO the engine would like a cam with more exhaust duration than intake duration.

I believe there are better intake manifolds available if the car is to be a daily driver or even a street/strip car. For instance, an Edelbrock RPM.

Just a strip only car. This engine is basically a replacement mule for the car until we can build a stroker. These are parts ive had on shelf for awhile. And her 5.0 is dying quick
The stock pistons we have have a small dish in the center

It will be fine for something that is temporary. It will all work, of course a better camshaft will help power, but if it's something you already have, run it!!

I would not use the Stealth and get an Edelbrock Performer RPM or older FRPP clone ... unless this engine is to live at wide open throttle which a strip ONLY car probably will.

Get a more beneficial camshaft in any case...
