Do some research if you never used a .6 + lift cam. Roller or 454 means nothing. That is 180 degrees from a street driver.

4 speeds are fine not a problem with a race car. Why wouldnt it operate at 3000 rpm. Are you imagining its just going to die?
I dnt care if this motor shakes and rattles. I want power and if that's at the expense of a shaky car with a rough idle then I feel it's worth it. I wanna be able to hear that cam. My current 383 has an isky hyd flat 295 that sounds great. Not a smooth ride but great acceleration and I can feel the power through the rpm. I'm expecting a rough idle at 3000 or under. But a nice acceleration throughout the rpm.
