No, not me.. But I figure it should be a dandy since it will still rpm above 6000rpm and make better low and midrange torque when compared to the original equipment cams due to the shorter advertised duration numbers..

It would to me seem to be like dropping in a modern version of the great, but old-fashioned, -097 Little Duntov solid cam.... And the old -097 cam ran pretty good in the little 283 and 327 motors way back when for as little as it is...

Jmho...

The Comp Cams tech line recommended the 282S for my DZ302 as well. They seem to be consistent. I ended up using their PN 12-674-3 30-30+ grind.

I think I ran this cam in a 68Z that I sold a few years ago. If you post the specs I will remember if it is the one when I see them. I can't seem to remember if mine was a 282 or 292.

I am almost certain that this (282S)is the cam, the S stands for solid lifter, correct? I was very happy with the cam, it pulled very strong right from a low rpm roll, and I ran it to 7000 RPM and above and it was still pulling. I am running the std z cam in another 68 z/28 and the comp cams is far superior. The comp cams unit has a very smooth idle, in fact the std z cam sounds a bit meaner at idle. The cam was the only thing non-stock in the motor except headers. The guy who did the machine work for it and recommended that I not go with the z cam does the motors for a number of NHRA stock and super stock record holders, and truly knows his stuff. I have also run the off road chevy cam for the z/28 which has a great (nasty) idle but a real limited performance range

Not in a 302 but we run it in a 10.3:1, Vic Jr, ProTopline 200cc heads, 327 bored +.060. I would think it would run similar in a 302 only the power band would shift up a little.

Idles with a little lope at 850 in gear, pulls hard from 2500-6500 RPM. Fastest times are shifting at 6500 . . .

I'd bet it would idle about the same and pull from 2800 to about 6800 in a 302 with an idle at about 900 in gear, 800 with a 4 speed in neutral.
