Sounds like a pretty mild cam to me. I have a similar comp cams cam that is a little bigger it specs out for a CA legal cam with a slightly noticeable idle and works with a stock converter I think the rpm range is like 2-6000. I would say the cam you have is fairly close but a little smaller.

What kind of car is this engine going into? Transmission?

Then, it should be a good choice for a mild upgrade, and you can probably get by with your stock converter.

its a clone of the crane 114142
its best matched to a 3.54-3.73 rear gear and a 2600rpm stall converter, so you instantly have access to a higher torque point in the power curve.
while it will work with a stock converter if youve got a 3.90-4.11:1 rear gear in a fairly heavy car,its at is best with a higher stall
read the notes on the crane cam
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

I agree with Grumpy.

I ran that Crane cam he referenced in his post in a 355 cubic inch SBC in a 1976 Chevelle, TH-350 transmission with an 1800 rpm stall convertor and 2.73:1 gears in the differential and it didn't like to stay below 2200 rpm.

Definitely pulled nice through 6000 rpm though. Also had no trouble hitting 120 mph with some throttle left in it.

I'd make sure your valve springs can handle .480" lift with .060" to spare. Like Grumpy says, that cam will like low gears, so power may be a little flat on the bottom with something like 3.08/3.23/3.36 gears, unless the car is lightweight like an early 60s Chevy II.

350 with Vortec heads & RamJet roller cam, along with TH350 replacing 250 six and 3-speed manual.
Sold my 55 sedan in 2014, after having owned it 11 years.
