F-Bird is right. A huge cam with a lot of compression isn't really any fun just to run pump gas. I just went through the same crap with a small block 350 bored .030 and domes. I ran a huge cam and it was lazy until 4,000 rpm. I just stepped down from a camshaft that is 310/320 In/ex. duration advertised and 262/270 in./ex. @.050 To a comp cams 294s grind number 12-224-4 in hopes for more bottom end and streetability. There isn't a need of high compression for a tunnel ram because the create a lot of velocity going down the intake runners which helps the engine rev quickly.
