That cam will want a 4500-5000 stall for max performance. It will want more than a 4.10 gear also. It wants to rev 4000-7000rpm

If that is a bit much for ya, go with a Isky #201534 A little tamer beast.
Lots of torque install 4deg advanced on a 102 in C/L. Needs a 10" 3500-3800 stall. The 4.10's are fine, with the smaller Isky cam.

Use 1.6 rockers and good valve springs.
