Flat tappet to roller cam

I am trying all angles to gain additional torque and power without going to a 351W in my 87 F150 302 AOD pickup. The engine I have is a flat tappet, can and will a roller cam engine give more power and torque, if so, what engine should I buy that will bolt up to my AOD. I contemplated going with the 351W but too many changes to be done for the EFI. What I am looking for is more torgue for pulling (302s aren't known for torque, I've been told) but I have to try and get the most out of one. Any and all help and info is greatly appreciated. I'm not comfortable with the stroker idea, still a daily driver, nothing wild just some more umph.
