Comp 282S 236-236- would work well in your combo and have better low end than the comp 280 hydraulic and will pull 15-16" of vacuum lashed at .022. Nice street cam with lots of low and mid range and won't beat up your valve train. Old school is cool and works!!

Power brakes? A/C? Street and strip? Street only? Weekender or daily transportation?

Give us a few more details and you'll get some good advice.

Sorry for the delayed response, i've been away....The car has power brakes, stage 2 TH350, no A/C, street only. I will put a posi in the 10 bolt until I build a 9" diff. 12-bolts don't come up for sale in Australia....

Thanks for the recommendation. I am definitely going solid...and tossing up between the CC282s and Lunati 402A2Lun.

I have noted that Harold normally recommends non-symmetrical lobe designs too, which most Comp Cams seem to be?

I think it should go close to 500hp. I use 98ron petrol as its readily available.
