Theres a guy on here selling a cam, a crane energizer that I was considering. The cam specs are 282 adv duration, 480 lift, 107-117 lobe speration and 228 @.050. What type of application would this cam be good for and does anyone have experience with it. Just any overall info would be great.

That particular grind has been around for a long time. Also offered by just about every other retailer.

This is about the biggest cam you can run on a stock converter. A "Saturday night special" (2200-2500+) type converter is a better choice.

Vac for power brakes is almost marginal and a lot of carbs need the drill a hole in the butterfly treatment to get smooth idle transition.

Lopy idle. Wide flat power band. Good on 350-400 engines with 9.5 or better compression, intake, headers.

There are better modern cams out there but if it fits the budget...

Not to come across as a smart***, but I just want to help you and others reading this to get the nomenclature straight. 107 is the intake centerline after top dead center (IC). 117 is the exhaust centerline before top dead center (EC). 112 is the lobe separation angle (LSA), sometimes called lobe center (LC). (107 + 117 / 2).
