Edelbrock Performer RPM cam

I am considering this cam in my chevy 350. The combination i am running is vortec 2.02 heads, Edelbrock RPM air gap manifold, 1 5/8 headers, Holley 650 carb and turbo 400 with a 2200-2400 stall. I am looking for a cam that will make good street driving low to mild range power with a nice musclecar type lopey idle. can anyone give me there opinion on this cam or what you would recommend. Thanks

If you want to use a 2200-2400 stall converter, use a crane #113801 HMV278-2 cam.
I run that cam in my 406 and can tell you that it pulls really well from about 2300 on up (Mine installed 4* adv.) but doesn't really have a lot of "lope" to it, at least not in my 406. Might have a bit more in 350/355 simply due to "looking bigger" to a lesser-cubed engine. That particular cam does have a very nice broad powerband to it, and in fact thats the reason I chose to run it in mine. -Jim
