I am sure others will disagree, but the 292 Magnum has a bad reputation as a cam that chops like all get out, but doesn't make the most power (especially in lower RPMs). It is an "old school" grind. I would think you would be much happier with one of the Xtreme Energy grinds. Maybe the 284 if you want a big one.
I've had no first hand experience with it but a buddy ran the 292 in a 406. A few years later he built a different engine that had 2 points less compression, less stall, but better heads and an XE274. The XE274 ran quicker at the track plus it could run on pump gas.
