Black mamba Jr- I ran 26 lb springs. I turned at least 7k RPM on my mini with torque converter.

I think the 265 cam wants 22lb springs.

As far as clearancing , I’m not 100% sure which cams are drop in. The Hemi crankshaft’s Rod journal has pretty tall “lips” around it. I tend to grind those “lips” shorter.
The CM (265) cam has a note saying some clearancing may be required...
“Note: Block or crankshaft may require clearancing to clear camshaft lobes.
7500 Max RPM.”
