Default Crawford 272's on a 08 WRX - What to expect?

Hello again Soobie lovers! I come to you again with one of my weird dilemmas. A little while ago I came across some head gasket issues on my 08 WRX with 69K miles. Of course this wasn't much of a surprise to me, stuff happens, no single Subaru is the same, therefore I decided to have it sent out to get repaired instead of doing it myself. The guy was super cool and got working on my car right away, and when it came time to start putting it back together, I had happened to mention that I would like a little "more" out of it. He stuck his head into his parts bin, and came back with a set of Crower 272 cams and Titanium valve springs and retainers. With the price he offered for these ($200) I could not refuse, and told him to go ahead with them.

Now my question to you guys, is what I should be expecting from my first few days with the car? I understand the street-ability of these cams is greatly reduced due to the power band being up top. Is there any specific ECU tuning things that I will need to change before I can completely utilize these cams? I do the tuning myself on this car through Tactrix, so any tips I can get for it is much appreciated. Thanks for reading guys!!
