Cam Question

OK guys, looking for opinions and I know you got em.

My current setup:

'69 350 engine, +.060, 10-1 pistons, Summit cast iron heads, Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake, Holley SA 670 carb, Mallory Unilite Dist, headers, TH350 with shift kit, 2000 stall convertor, 3.73 gears, 26" tire

I started years ago with the CompCams XE262, then went with the XE268 http://www.compcams.com/Cam_Specs/Ca...x?csid=86&sb=2 that I have in there now. Camaros and TransAms get ahead of me off the line but my Chevelle really cranks up around 2400rpm and pulls nicely to 6000rpm where I usually shift it.

I am not going to change the rear gear as it is a daily driver. I can't afford to put the 700R4 in there this year though I know the lower 1st gear would help with my 60' times. I do have one suggestion already for the Lunati Voodoo 60103 http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=1984 or 60104 http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=1985 .

I do have a line on a 2400 stall convertor which will help as well but I am in the mood for a cam change! Granted I am trying to "do it all" with my 4-door, kid-haulin, camper pulling, daily driver drag race car so I do keep that in mind as there are trade-offs in the hobby. Just want a little more set-of-the-pants feel I guess.

I have heard great comments on the Voodoo cams but they all lean towrds the 268 with my setup. Comparing the Comp 268 to the Lunati 268 shows very little difference but there is some. Anybody have experience I can consider for this year's upgrade???

Thank you!

Darren

Re: Cam Question

Even if you are not putting in a taller gear for Daily Driver, I suggest CC's XTREME MARINE™ Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshafts. Something like the XM262H-12 or XM270H-12. A shorter duration INT with that longer duration and higher lift on the EXT on a 112 LSA will broaden the Torque Curve and maintain Hi-Revs with your heavier ride; besides, nothing sounds a good as a Marine Ext-Note - LOL
