Default heads,cam,intake,tb

Hey guys, I installed 4.56 gears this weekend and really woke the truck up. I want to do a cam swap with a cam effective from idle to around 5500. any recommendations? I also want to port and polish, gasket match, as well as bore the intake valve side to 2.02. on the heads. Is this possible on a stock head or do i need to purchase aftermarket? I also want to open up the kegger and tb. Does anyone know a shop or have the knowhow to do all this, i am not comfortable with doing this extensive of a modification minus the addition of a new head. any input or advice is welcome thanks

Hughes has your cam-HUG HER0814ALN- 399.00
Ive seen Magnum heads set up with 2.02 valves, just cant remember where
Modifying the kegger isn't difficult if you are reasonably good with your hands. there are many articles online you can look up to find decent step by step instructions.
other possibilities you can look at are the 1.7 rocker arms, throttle body spacers,
