    Camshaft

    Just wondering if someone can help me decide which cam i should run.I have 2 cams both are in great shape.1 is an edelbrock 234/[email protected] with 488-510 lift.308/318 advertised.Other is a crane cam 320/320 480/480 older but cant find much more info.it has 228/320 stamped on end.Im building a 4 bolt 350 60 over with a tunnel ram with 2 450s.Car is tubbed with ford 9 inch.Havent gotten heads yet but putting bottom end together.Th350 with stall, but exact stall not decided yet.I want a lopey to rough idle with good power.Not sure what other info is needed to decide which cam is better.Thanks for any info.Randy.

    id prolly go with the edelbrock cam myself ,and twin 500's or 600's
    believe me the motor will like more fuel available rather than starving

    get some edel heads there cheep enough for chevy's now a days
    and use the best springs retainers,and valves instead of just the ones that will get you by

    Run far away from the Pro-crap heads. Spend a little extra for as cast Darts, by the time you fix the issues you will spend more than if you had bought the Darts.

    This is a good head for your combo with springs matched for your cam.
