I think usually with a cam like that power would be 1500 to 6500. the box upper is usually a high rever even higher than that. I guess it really depends where you plan on keeping the rpm's, how strong your bottom end is (including balancer rating) I would just think that you probably would be better off with a trick flow track heat or even just going with the gt 40 upper to match your lower. And I also heard the box uppers dont fare to well on the street so It depends what the use of the car is.

Are you planning on keeping that tranny? If so it WILL break under the power of a turbo'ed 351. That is unless it had been upgraded.
