I have to agree with Techinspector1, that is too much cam for your engine. I ran that cam in an oval track "claimer" 355 similar to your engine except it had no vortec heads. Low end power was nonexistent, it really came to life about 5500, not a hot setup in a cast crank, stock rod, cast piston engine that I didn't want to take much over about 6000 rpm so it could have a nice long life. That 355 is in the garage now, and before it goes back in a car that cam will be switched out for something with less duration.
