It'll be a good cam once you add the heads later. With the stock heads, it will sound good but probably kill a lot of low end. I have the same cam with TFS heads and a Holly Systemax intake.

is the LX an automatic car or a 5-speed car? are you going carb or efi on the 5.0? these details will determine your answers. I've done this swap before, so feel free to get in touch.
