That's a pretty high rpm cam, with a very close LSA at 108, and should be OK for drag racing, but not too good for the street with it's 3,500-6,500 rated power range.
I like the old 427 format, as it's a little less torque, but higher rpm engine. Less hp/torque than the trendy 496-572 engines, but a nice little big block.
