That cam is almost identicle to the Crane 100172.

Rough idle, moderate performance usage, good low and mid-range torque and HP, mild bracket racing, auto trans w/2500+ converter, 2600-3000 cruise RPM, 8.75 to 10.0 compression ratio advised. Basic RPM 2200-5200

biggest thing I see wrong with it is the need for a high stall converter if you are running an automatic. Other than that, it will probably have a real loppy idle.

Point well taken (Jmark)it's just that that's the cam that i've got and havent had the chance to here it yet.Some of the tech guy's tell me that i'll barly here it,and other's tell me that it'll have a gentle lope.The power range is in the 1500 to 5200 rpm range,so im gonna use a 1800 to 2400 stall for a daily driver.

It will have a slight lope but nothin crazy.That Crane cam listed above only has a lumpy rough idle cause it has a 106 lob seperstion.

With an advertised rpm spread from 1500 to 5500, you might not need the high stall converter. I"d ck the Launati web site and see what they say.
The differences between the Launati and the Crane can be huge even though the numbers are very close. But it WILL sound good no matter which one you use. LOL

If you don't have emission checks where you live, go for it. Launati has an excellent record and lots of people swear by em!

I chose a Crane for my current rebuild 'cause they had a real good "cam picker" page. Its actually one step down from yours. Its the "biggest" one crane makes without needing a high stall converter.
I found one that fit my cruise rpm to a "t" and liked the specs and idle quailty. We have emission testing here in Phx AZ so engines with radical cams are very tricky to get to pass. I'm playing it safe, don't want to change it after the fact.
