What are your opinions' of this cam with turbo set up

The cam is Lunati 51012- 544/560 232/242 with 112lsa

I initially thought this cam was just too big and wanted to go the custom route, however the engine builder (who is exeptional with n/a motors and has experience with turbo plane motors) told me that since I have the cam already that one can degree it in several different ways and he should be able to make it have good power. I honestly do not know what to think other than my initial thought of too big and not really conducive for a turbo car.

General Specs on car are as follows.

351w 69 block
Fully ported Edelbrock heads
Fully ported lightning intake
76mm turbo- .96 exhaust side
60lb injectors
3" pmas meter cal'd for injectors
75mm tb

If you need more to answer the question let me know...
Thanks in advance.

Hard to tell based off just those figures.

Can't tell the ramp rate, although with not much lift, it looks to have some fairly easy ramps (not very aggressive) which means, the overlap might be a bit much.

I could be blowing smoke up your ass though too!

I say try it and see what you get.

With turbos, cam selection is not as important as is turbo selection. Also, it is not like we are dealing with a 302, with the extra cubes of the 351 you might be surprised how well the cam will work. You can always change it later if you want to.

1979 Mustang coupe, EFI 393, A/A intercooled Eaton m122, 4r70w trans, Megasquirt II, T-top swapped in.

1990 Mustang, 545 BBF, C-4 with brake, ladder bars, tunnel ram with two Predator carbs, solid roller cam, 9", 390/45r15 drag radials.

boost cams like as little valve over lap as possible
and a LSA of more like 114.

try and find a turbo cam or get a custom cam

having said that I'm going to keep my XFI cam (.579/.579 236/248 114)
and see how it does under boost
