It’s custom ground, I’d have to look up the lift and duration. It’s hydraulic and I didn’t want a lumpy cam for the street. I dislike driving cars like that on the street, my personal opinion. 
 

And I will correct myself over 400 ft/lbs to 500 rpm but stays high 

averages are 392 ft/lbs and 350 hp. With the 4 speed it should be a nice ride. Way too expensive though haha 🤷‍♂️

That is a nice torque curve. I hear ya on the cost - spent a chunk of change on mine as well. I see you had the same issues as I did, going lean in the 4k range and up. I am running a Holley 750 Street HP and we had 80/88 jets in it. It was getting late and we elected to leave it as-is and I'd do the final tune when it was in the car with a wideband O2, as the exhaust might cause it to richen up. I'll be getting some qulaity time in a month or so playing with air bleeds and PVCR sizes.

Couple of install shots. Slowly coming along. I’ve got it about 90% in now, trans is back in, accessories, driveshaft, exhaust, etc, just triple checking torques and making sure I don’t get a gross fuel leak all over that fresh paint.

Looking for some help on some finishing touches. 
Mainly Vacuum lines and air breather hose connections. Also this weird little blue canister, what is it and does it need to be plugged off or hoses routed to make it run as smooth as possible? 
 

sream car, but my first one, help please

The blue canister is your evap canister. It's filled with activated charcoal and it's purpose is to vent the fumes from the gas tank. Looks like you've already got the line that goes to the fuel tank hooked up. The middle fitting has a plastic cap that goes on it, while the one on the left has a flexible aluminum tube that connects it to the air cleaner. NOS ones are very hard to come by if that's what you're wanting, but there are repros out there, or I guess there's nothing preventing you from just hooking up some 3/4" vacuum/egr hose. https://www.npdlink.com/product/hose-assy-fuel-vapor-canister/147118

Thanks for your response! And does that like connect to the open space on the Aircleaner I have in the photo? 
Correct. Your air cleaner has 2 spots for connections on it. The one in the front goes to the flexible tube to the evap canister, and I believe the other one goes to  the breather cap on the back of the valve cover, but someone can correct me on that if I'm wrong.
