Yeah, you probably could do it via a custom cam, never really thought about trying that method.
What I meant by that is a 347 with that type of compression is already kind of torquey to most people. A 302 with stock compression is pretty torquey to most people. Mix the two and you are going to get a TON of lower end torque, so much that it might be a tad hard to actually use any of it, especially on the street. In regards to cooling, the higher comp motors tend to run hotter as is, turbos add a bit of underhood heat, then a IC tends to hamper the cooling system some, so all those mixed together and it will take a very well done cooling system to keep up with things.
Honestly with a Cobra, I'd turbo it and keep the motor around stock compression. I would think you are not going to run into your fears unless you go overboard on the turbo sizing and low compression.
