Post Big Block chevy cam help

I need help choosing the right cam for my big block, the motor is a 512' block with steel 454 crank and L-88 rods, comp is arround 11:1 and heads are old style oval ports Int2.19 Exh 1.88. engine displaces 468 cui.

The car is a 32 roadster weighing in at 2650 lbs. tranny is a bullitproof 700 r4 with 3000 stall and rear is 3.50.

What cam do i need, i have a 292H comp magnum cam (I/E 244@.050 ls 110) but i need more power.

i am considering a solid roller cam at 262/272@.050 .690lisf with lobe sep of 114. is this way off

some one told that the key to makeing power with a bigblock is a large roller cam, and wiiide lobe seperation.

intake is a torker 2-o single plane and carb is modified 850DP.

i want to go low 11's and no spray.. will the cam do the job or do i also need better heads?
