Lift is really not that important, what the duration and intake centerline numbers?

You didn't throw away the cam spec sheet or did you install the cam? These specs are important when choosing other parts to go with your engine/trans combo.

The duration/overlap/intake valve closing point/LSA has to do w/what stall speed may be needed, not the lift per se. If you have a cam card for this cam, the specs are there.

You'll know soon enough if the cam was put into the engine w/the engine in the car- when you drop it into gear the first time if it pulls through the brakes, you will need more stall speed. If the engine is out of the vehicle, now is the time to decide on the TC, and we'll need the specs as well as a run down on the vehicle to make a recommendation.

There are some crutches that may help a too-tight TC, but in the end, the TC has to match the cam for best results.
