what diff ratio are you running? i am thinking that you will need more stall and maybe more diff, i run a 294s in my 347 with a 4.1 diff and a tremmec,at 35mph (our local speed limit)in fourth gear its doing 2000rpm
and its very unresponsive,it wakes up at about 3800.is it streetable?? well i only drive weekends so for me yes others no.

You need a higher stall, like 4000+ to take advantage of the new cam. And 4.10 gears too.

so if i were to use the 294 cam with 3500 or if i have to 4000 stall converter, and 4:11 or 4:56, will my car still be slow off the line, and
power less at low rpms on the street, or will the taller gear and stall gear solve that problem?

this is a street/strip application

the engine will spin up quicker off the line cause of the 4.11 or 4.56 diff but the 294 will move the powerband futher up the rpm range.do yourself a favour put a solid 294s in it.i am not familiar with stall convertors while just cruising,maybe some1 else can guide you
