    Only if you want power only above 4000rpms, crappy idle and the need to buy a new higher-stall torque converter.

    If you want low-end power, you should look into a cam with about 204-210 deg of intake duration @.050 lift.

    If you're talking about advertised duration, then it could work, although pretty high still.
