What do you use the car for - drags or just cruiser
What do you want out of the cam - loads of low down torque or max power up top, lumpy or sedate idle
Do you want fuel usage to remain the same or worse

Lumpy idle weekend weapon maybe the odd drag fuel consumption not blown out the window but still want plenty thrill when you stand on it

I personally think that cam you listed is fairly big and would chew through a little more fuel than you would like. Another profile to look at 228/232 111 (or something around these numbers)would produce a fair amount of torque yet create decent power in the higher revs along with a lumpy idle. You still would need a stall with a cam of this size

First cam needs a 4000+ stall. Closer to 4500 I'd say.
