How do you guys think this engine would work for me? See specs below. This is a crate 350 sold by Yearone. I'm concerned that the cam maybe a little too hot for a street car. Would it give me sufficent low end off-idle power? Would my stock torque converter work? Seems like a good deal for $3000.

I think that would be a great engine that should easily put that kind of power out for another 100,000 miles. Its too mild for me, so hopefully someone else here has purchased one of these to give you feedback on its manners.
