LM7 in my 68... what cam

I currently have an LM7 that i installed in my 68. I have a few days off in the next few weeks and want to fill them with working on the car. the engine just doesnt feel like it has enough power so i am thinking custom Blackbear tune, headers, cam swap and fast intake. Now just gotta pick a cam here are a few i have been thinking of, please let me know what you think or if there is a better one for the project. currently its an auto trans, but will be going stick in next few months.... i hope lol.

COMP Cams 54-455-11
COMP Cams 54-535-11
Lunati 60512
Lunati 60510

I am new to Cam swaps so please tell me if i am not thinking of something.

Thanks, David

Comp 54-600-11 The Thumper cams not only sound great but make incredible power all over. I would go with it.

This LSr cam would work well also.

Re: LM7 in my 68... what cam

With stock heads I think you'd be best to limit it something in the 22x/22x duration range. The thumper looks interesting but I dont have any experience using them in LS motors. I would use an LS6 intake & save the money from using the FAST. On a stock headed 5.3 I don't think it would be worth it. Don't forget to get a good set of matching valve springs & hardened pushrods. I'd also get a new o-ring for the pickup tube & be sure to lube it before install. Keep us posted on the install!
