...you like what you like....LOL I like the revvy stuff too...(a lot)...but not for a daily driver. Revvy daily drivers these days are all fuel injected with variable cam timing. The cam timing is way advanced in normal street driving, then is retarded as the engine needs to make more horsepower on the big end. We don't have that luxury. So if we get carried away with the cam or retarded cam timing, we get an engine that doesn't like to cruise under 2200-2400, bucks and shakes the whole way, has lots of reversion so that it's harder to tune, is smelly, etc. I like something that if I'm driving downtown, and need to make a very slow turn in traffic, I don't have to shove it up in 1st gear and slip the clutch to keep it running/moving.
Nothing wrong with a cam with less vacuum and no bottom end, as long as the customer knows the cons of a setup like that and is perfectly fine with it.
I will say this...a light car, a manual transmission, and a LOW gear makes up for a lot...
I know I'm not doing a good job of answering your question and it's because I don't really have a clear cut answer...hahaha I've done some 230° @ .050" cams in 351s and they (the engines and the drivers) seem to like them, even in the heavier cars. I stick them on 104° ICL's though and make sure all the timing comes in fairly quick. If I go past that on duration, I start thinking more about vehicle weight, transmissions, and rearends.
