Powerglide and cam combo (Street-strip)

Hi! And... excuses my poor english speaking usually in french so...

I'm looking to build a 383 with the biggest torque gain having a powerglide (with TCI kit and 2500 stall) that i wanna keep. I did a lot of searches on the forums and... Oh!!! Not easy to be fixed. I stopped it at the following cam:

Howards 110885-10
Basic Operating RPM Range: 2,000-5,800
Duration at 050 inch Lift: 225 int./225 exh
Advertised Duration: 278 int./278 exh.
Valve Lift with Factory Rocker Arm Ratio: 0.525 int./0.525 exh.
Lobe Separation (degrees): 110 (Not less, having power brake)

My rear end ratio: 3.73 and my intention is to get strong acceleration. Also, i like choppy idle and have tought about this one: Howards Cams Retrofit Hydraulic Roller Camshafts 110525-10 -

I plan to get the 75cc AFR 195 (It should give a 9.5:1) I have the Brodix HP1intake (0-6000 range and would be good for torque?)

So, what cam and carb suggested?

Thanks a lot!!!
