454 Intake Recommendation

Was looking for recommendations from you guys about a good cam (a good durable cam), carb (prefer holley vaccuum secondary), and intake combo for my 454. I am going to use the 781 oval port heads that I just purchased and would like to see this motor come alive from between 2000-6000 to 6500 RPM.

Really open to any and all suggestions. This vehicle will mainly be on the street, but I would like it to flat get after it at the track as well. The weight of the vehicle will end up being between 2400-2800 pounds I'm guessing and I will end up running 3.70 - 4.11 gears and between a 2200-3000 stall.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Im planning on about the same thing with my 454. Im going with around 10:1 comp, performer RPM air gap intake, and im not sure about the cam yet either, maybe a performer RPM also. Edelbrock 750 carb. Mine will be in a 79 C10, im guessing 4500#? 3.07 gears for now but thinking about changing to 3.73 or 4.10.
