WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE CAN SUGGEST A CAM FOR MY 69, 355,202 CAMEL HUMP HEADS EDELBROCK TORQUER MANIFOLD, 650 HOLLEY,10:1 COMPRESSION, MUNCIE 4 SPEED, 411 REAR. HAVE RUN SOLIDS IN THE PAST BUT AS I GET OLDER BENDING OVER UNDER THE HOOD IS MURDER ON MY BACK TO ADJUST THEM, BUT I LOVE THE SOUND OF SOLIDS BECAUSE OF THE CHOPPY IDLE... I AM THINKING OF GOING HYDRAULIC THIS TIME. MY FRIEND SAID TO GO WITH COMP XE284H-10 DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THAT CAM SOUNDS LIKE AT IDLE, 900 TO 1000 RPMS. THANKS GUYS !!!

Depending on what you want. Either the 270H or the 280H will give you a decent lopey idle, but still not give away all you've got underneath the hood. I've not run the extreme only the magnum cam. I love the heck out of it. It's still got a decent grunt to it at idle, torquey off the line, but will still push you back in your seat at 70 when you punch it.

Yes, the CC 270 Magnum is a dandy for what you want, imho too..

And even the CC 268HE cam will be very powerful in your motor...

An Isky 270 Mega cam, (part # 201271), b/c of it's 108 LCA will talk to you a little more if you want more "cackle" AND will do fine too..

AND a Crane 274 H06, (part # 10017), will cackle even more then the Isky due to it being on 106 LCA..

Take your pick???

PS., the Torquer intake isn't helping you all that much at the lower rpm's hy-cams generally operate at when compared to the higher rpm solid lifter cams so maybe a good old Holley 300-36 true high-rise dual plane will do you better.

AND Summit sells them worth the money, imho, b/c I just got one several weeks back!

At 10:1 scr a 280adv. duration will put you pretty close to 8.0 dcr. and that's a good thing. I'm partial to the Comp Magnum 280H because I run one. It will idle with a nice thump at 800 on down and will idle at 600 in gear with an auto. Pretty good torque down low and will scream on past 6000 even though Comp says that's the top end. As the old commercial says "Try it you'll like it".

If you like the sound of solid lifters then the CC XE is the one for you. I bought an XE268 this summer. It runs real strong, pulls hard and noisy, it doesn't lope like a 284. I just can not stand the sound of it, If I wanted it to sound like a solid lifter cam, I would have put one in. It is way to noisy for me but, to each their own.
