I wouldn't use that cam if it were free.
You are shooting yourself in the foot in a big way wanting to use stock springs, they were probably marginal on the stock cam a decade ago. Thinking you can swap cams and keep old springs is 1970s thinking.
I know the trucks sometimes got flat tappets in roller cam blocks which your truck will have a roller cam block. So put a roller cam in it. If you have roller lifters they are reusable.
If I had a similar application I would look at either.
http://www.competiti...ductinfo/E1136/ or The Ramjet cam p/n 14097395 I had the ZZ3 cam at one point and really liked it but I believe the exhaust lift will be too much for your heads.
A dirt cheap option would be a used 96+Vortec, little smaller than all of these but bigger than what you have. That cam was used in the b-bodies 94-96 and a lot of us screw around with those cars so there are a lot of stock cams to be had for little more than shipping.
Proper heads can make more torque, the common practice of blindly making the port bigger does not help it though.
I would scratch the fuel pressure regulator too and instead get real custom reprogramming.
I know I pretty much tore apart your plan, sorry but my experience says the "magazine build" you proposed would have been a disappointment.
