Well the camshaft you ordered is only a bit smaller duration than the one already in the car.

A 2400 stall won't be enough.

You spent a lot of money for nothing.
In a Comp cam you should have ordered Comp cam # 12-208-2 CS 265DEH-10
A much better match for the purpose and a 2400 stall. It has the rpm range and driving character you
are after. it is the right cam for your 327.
your car your money...

The cam you ordered and the cam that is in the car now both don't get real busy until 3000+rpm
Both need the same 3200-3500 stall 10" torque converter. And both will need the carb and distributor re-tuning mods
to run nice. Your new carb will need the same re-tuning to make it right with that cam.
