Yes it is. Better flowing heads require less cam timing to achieve a given HP.
A victor intake is overkill for a 5000 to 5,500 rpm 460.

A stock damper is fine for your use.

I can get rebuilt dampers for early and later BBF's via my engine parts supplier EPWI.

Chamber volume on D3 castings can vary from 97 to 100 cc's if not decked appreciably and valves are not sunk in chamber.
