Depends on what else you want to have done to the car, or already have done. Stage 2 is the best for a car without much engine work done to it. Comp Cams, Hi-Tech, and CMS are all really good cams.

Stage 2 would be best for you, usually stage 3 cams have PVC issues with stock pistons and would require aftermarket pistons. So if you don't plan on building the motor a whole lot then stage 2 would be good

I don't trust nitrous enough I just wanna do full bolt ons which all I got left is really cams heads and headers. Could I just get my heads ported? Is it worth it and how much does it cost?

If you don't mind spending a nice chunk of $ this is something you would like.
CMS/MHS 2V Modular Head/Cam Package Stage 3 - Cushman Motorsports
You get the stage 3 heads, and can pick between which cams you want. Remember that more aggressive cams will raise the rpm up higher in the powerband, so pick which ones will be best suited for you. This should let you rev up to 7k

They are. But they're expensive. Look into port and polished pi heads and see how much it costs. It's cheaper I know but not sure how much. Trick flows, flow better out of the box better than port and polished pi heads but they are pricey.

Yeah trick flow claims gains from ~380 to 390hp
With their h/c/I combo
I'm willing to bet that's crank hp though
