k i have now just a stock set of heads with 2.02/1.60 valves
and a powermax cam
adv. dur.-278/290
.467/.494 with 1.5 rockers

im gonna pull all that off and go with a set of port and polished 2.02/1.60 fueler heads and either one of these extreme energy comp cams...

XE 12-250-3
adv.-284/296
lift.-507/510
or
XE 12-246-3
adv.274/286
lift.487/.490

with 1.6 rockers
which one of these think will be best for street and strip but drivin often? any other suggestions?

I would go with the 284/296 cam.You do have headers and decent exhaust?

When you compare cams try to find .050 duration #(Jegs doesn't always have them listed).Advertised duration varies between cam companies.

Call Comp and see which one they recommend.

if you are going with the 1.6 rr.s i would go with the 284/296 since it has a higher lift. What type of heads are you running? Aluminum or are you running iron heads?

Remember a more powerful motor will stall higher on the same converter.

If your fuelie heads were ported by anyone decent they will flow plenty for that cam.What are the casting nubers on these heads?

The 12-250-3 cam has 240/246 degrees duration at .050,this is a bit aggressive but,it also has a 110 degree lobe seperation.The wider lobe seperation will aide in bottom end power,and vacuum.


If you want max performance I think this cam will work.

I recently built a 327 for a freind w/edelbrock performer rpm heads the 12-254-3 cam (294/306-250/256 at .050 duration .519/.523 lift).It is in a 78 Grand am (Malibu)323 gear,3500 stall,around 3200# first time out went 12.80.Car drives fine but needs a vacuum can for the power brakes.
