Comp Cams 270H in a 350 V8?

What do you think? My plan was to put it in my V6, but I think it's totaled, so I might as well do a V8 swap. How big of a cam can I put in a 350, or would my 270H work well?

What compression ratio?, which heads?, you'll need decent heads to turn it past 5500 rpm.
270H prolly needs at least 9.5:1 CR and should rev to 6000 rpm+-

spare parts...

edit
try to find a decent set of heads. If it were me, I'd look for a used truck motor w/vortec heads, have the work done to the heads (.500+ lift cams), bump the CR to around 10:1 and use a roller cam like the Crane 119831.

spare parts...

I ran the same cam in my 406 when it had stock 400 heads that I hogged out. It smoked the tires infinitely before I tubbed it out. I didn't have any cooling issues even using a Camaro radiator. I did buy the appropriate valve springs for that cam though. You'd probably be suprised how good it will run.

Magnuns are good cams.....just old technology. The extreme stuff has kind of kicked em to the back burner.
I had a 280(i think) magnum in my truck for a long time.
