Honestly, your 327 isn't much different than mine. Mine runs fine on premium at nearly 10.5 to 1, I use vortec heads and have a tight quench at .040. Your solid cam is a step larger than my hydraulic (.480"i, .494"e, 284 i, 290e advertised, 228 and 234 at .050 with a 106 LSA). I run a 4 speed and feel that this cam would be very poorly matched with anything less than a 3500 stall in an automatic!! I run a 650 dbl.pumper on an air-gap dualplane intake. I feel that my combination is well thought out and the lil. 327 screams. Remember performance is give and take, if you went a little more conservative with cam, intake and carb. size it will be a much more enjoyable Street engine with just a tad less Strip performance.
