Why are you so hung up on small cam profiles in that 204/212 durations?

The stock camshaft in that 6.0L is a 204/211 @ .050.

Do a minimum 210/218 @ 50 with minimum .550" lift

ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT TO SHIFT AT 6000 RPMS! :roll:

The OP asked for opinions, BUT, very clearly, they just want someone to validate THEIR opinion.
