cam selection

I have a 65R code Galaxie 500XL that I am in process of collecting parts to build a 482 stroker, targeting 9.5 CR or so. It will be a mostly street vehicle. So far, I have a Dove tunnel wedge MR intake, with Edelbrock 6008 heads and T&D comp 7030 rockers. The heads have been manipulated to block off the oil passages to use pushrod oiling, with 2.19 and 1.73 valves. This setup was done by Wood brother / Wood & Sons (they were getting 800HP out of it but it wasn't enough). I'm looking at a solid roller cam that was cut by Oregon cams, with .576 lift, 252 duration @ 0.50, 109 lobe separation (grid 1354), with Comp solid rollers with extra oiling for rollers. This grind was recommended by Ken at Oregon when the original owner of the top end was planning his build. Before I buy the cam & lifters, I just want to know if this is too radical cam for street use, with the components I'm getting. Will this have adequate low end with 4speed transmission? Thanks for your comments.
