Default Centrifugal Cam in TT build?

Iím looking for some cam advice.
Originally I built a LSX 427 with the following cam 227/243 .615/.624 114LSA +5 (Comp Cam 54-477-11). Originally the cam was intended for a YSi set-up but I sold it to go to a TT set-up (Twin S372s). Can I still run this cam? One person told me that the cam would still be decent but not fully optimized.

Yea you'll be fine. I've ran many blower cams with turbo setups. Not a deal breaker.

Nothing is ever fully optimised unless they spend countless hours on a dyno testing every possible combination.

If you dont want to go do the trouble of changing the cam, then dont.

If that doesnt easily make 1k+ with even a stock cam, something is very badly wrong.

I run a custom blower cam 218/228 .561/.561 114.5+5.5 in my 5.3 that I had a torqstorm center on. I pulled the centri and left the $400 cam as it still has a good bit of negative overlap and now I run a single turbo. It works well and car is plenty fast, I'm sure a turbo cam or a triple12 would work better but I'm not in a max power build.

I ended up getting a custom cam from TJ @ Bakers Engineering
