Assuming it's a roller motor ??
Similar cam specs to the crane 2031 or 2030 depending on rocker ratio..
With reasonably LSA it would be quite mild on a 351.. But with enough lift to let them heads breath..Should be a real torque-er in 351...

These flat tappet cams work well..

Nope it's flatty ebxr, of course there's nothing stopping him using a retro-roller.
Here's one of those new thumpr cams from comp. It's a roller in std base circle but I'm sure they'd do a reduced base for 5.0 rollers. It'd be a good cam if you want it to sound radical without being so.

btw be sure to get it with a -9 suffix and use a 5.0 steel dizzy gear.

If you want to stay flat tappet here's one...
