My experience with big cams is easier starting, and less flooding, partly due to higher lift and longer duration on the exhaust side, JMO. In my blower motor flooding isn't a problem, I've only flooded it once. In the tunnel ram BBC bucket, same thing, easy to clear it out but it starts with a roar. I never crank the blower motor with the throttle open, and try not to in the bucket, but that is how you clear it.
You can never have too much power, just not enough traction...
