    if you ever plan on getting a cam, a stall thats about 3500rpm is perfect.
    even if you dont get a stall, 3500 is good.

    Get a stall at least 3200. And nhraformula is correct, get a stall first.

    In my opinion....that cam isn't a daily driver cam.
    Makes great power, great track times.

    But it is horrible on mileage. Not best for a daily driver with an auto.

    Something like a 228/228 would be better. 3800 stall.

    Gas mileage.
    Motor would be fine, but you would need a good stout valvespring and hardened pushrods for any cam. Bigger the cam, the better the valvespring has to be.
    I would recommend Manley dual springs for that cam.
