can anyone give me an idea on what idle characteristics (mild, fair, rough, etc.) and if it's a decent performance cam for the following cam specs in a 12:1 BBC 427 that is a street car with a 4 speed and power disc brakes? it is brand new and i can buy it very reasonably if it will be something i can use;

bbc solid roller
advertised duration; 287-Int / 292-Exh
duration @ .050; 251-Int / 255-Exh
lift; .630-Int / .630-Exh
lobe seperation; 108-Int / 112+4-Exh

Thanks in advance!

It should have a fair to rough idle and not a whole lot of vacum for power brakes. I'm NO cam guru, I'm just going by whats in my bbc.

he was telling me the lobe seperation on the exhaust side of 112+4 will help quite a bit on the vacuum part.....and worse case scenerio is i could use a vacuum canister or an electrical vacuum pump, but i was wondering if anyone has used a cam similiar to this and if it had a decent or racy idle......Thanks!

My father has a cam with numbers very similar to yours in his daily driven 427 BBC. His cam is also on a 108 LSA and it sounds very trashy. He is running manual brakes so I cannot comment on vacuum aspect of it, but I would be willing to bet you will need an additional vacuum resevoir.
