So here are the cam Specs:
ADV dur. 279/281
dur. @ .050 247/249
lift .585/.585
LSA 108
ICL 104
Lash .022/.022

The heads are untouched and setup for this camshaft. I will drop the valves and at least do a bowl blend. I need to read a little more literature before getting crazy with any real port work. It will being going into a 78 camaro with a th 350. I don't have a convertor but will probably go with a hughes 3500 stall, outback it has a detroit locker, 3.90 gears and 26in MT drag radials

stock oil pump is good for 450 plus hp,6 qts is a good upgrade too.
cheap and high performance doesnt add up to reliability

Nothing wrong with that cam at all. Car is set-up well for this engine and the larger cam specs just make it that much better in a big 400 small block.

Put it together and you will really like it. Pretty good match for a collection of random parts.

I myself wouldn't worry about internal balancing if this is a street/strip effort not to see over 7200 rpm. Internal balance only seems necessary for the constant high rpm of circle track/road course racing or Drag engines well above 7000 rpm often, in my opinion, but the call/budget is yours.

The external balance engines on the cheaper stroker kits have a history of cracking or braking behind number 2 main journal.The question of balancing or not is as old as the hills.Over time it has been proven no matter what the rpm range is,unbalanced engines are hard on bearings.For the costs involved in balancing vs the risks,it is by far cheaper to balance the engine.
