With a smaller LSA you will get a narrower "peakier" power curve,though.
78 monte beat me, I was gonna suggest the same cam. The same grind is available as the Crane 274HO6 grind 274HO6 cam/lifters at Summit Racing, the Summit K00172 (supplied to Summit by Crane) Summit Racing SUM-1785 cam (K00172 cam & lifter kit) at, and the Elgin CL1785PK Cam/lifter kit at Northern Auto Parts Elgin CL1785PK at Northern Auto Parts. This grind, with it's tight 106* lobe spacing angle, has a pretty rough idle, Crane lists the powerband as 1800-5400. Crane states this cam is good for 8.75:1 - 10:1 compression ratios.

Kenny, this cam may satisfy your buddy's "cam music" desire and still give good performance. Here's some YouTube videos of this grind:
