Need help on a 557 stroker build

So far Iv got a TMD 557 stroker kit with hawks racing 5130 forged I beam rods,and a TMD stud girdle(all balanced at TMD). Im planning on using some TFS A460 heads, ARP head stud kit, key way adjustable timing chain set,high volume oil pump,trick flo R series A460 intake, meizer electric water pump,and long tube headers.
My questions are
1. Is this a good setup
2. What cam to use. This wont be a drag motor so it needs to be streetable
3. What header size should I use
4. What size/brand of carb to use
I apologize for the newbie questions. Iv been reading a lot of threads and trying to figure out what combo to go with.
