Superstreet Blower cam specs

I knows its been 5+ years since you asked this question, but I have all the specs and the original packaging for the Super street B&M blower cam, if your still interested? Remember they had two different CAMs, one "street charger" for thier standard blower (144) 6-8 pounds of boost, and a "Super street charger" model for built motors and or motors using the HIGH ENERGY (162) blower running 10-12 pounds of boost. The super model was said to have a rougher idle but still enough vacum to run on the street.
Has anyone run these cams. what was your experience, did they make more power for you ?
Well if you want I can post all the specs tomorrow?

sure I still want them, I have the super street charger cam, it's installed in a .040 over 350 SBC, I have the 144 blower with the smallest pulley B&M offered for them back in 1998, Iīm restoring this engine thatīs been sitting in a corner for years.

I used this engine as a daily driver long time ago and was a good performer, it idles rather smooth, I expected a rougher idle but didn't get it.

The blower made 10-11 psi of boost, made lots of power and sounded beatiful, I had lots of problems with the belt, the tensioner failed, the mounting bolts at the nose stripped so I fabbed a mount for the tensioner using the alternator base, the one thet goes on top, it worked fine.

I want the specs to dial in the cam perfectly, I think I have it slightly retarded, I want to make sure it runs the way itīs supposed to be.

please post the specs, I would really appreciate it.

Specs are 234-244@.050" .488-.510 114 LSA

Summit cam #1107 is exactly the same.
Here is the summit #1107 cam card

You will have to use a solid lifter or read off the edge of the hyd lifter to get accurate degreeing results. If the timing gears are a set, it should degree in within +/-1deg.

The edelbrock performer rpm cam is similar, but on a 112 LSA

I know blowers tame a lot the cam's rough idle, but mine idles like stock, hard to belive it has 244 deg of exhaust, so this cam should be good for something like 400+ horses, I have ported heads and headers in this engine, 7.9:1 CR.

I used to have lots of pingin before, but that was with 882 heads, now it has better heads polished and ported, I expect lower boost reading with this better flowing heads. And hopefully with this low CR I won't have many issues

thanks for helping

The infromation I posted is what I used with a B&M 420 blower,, much bigger that the 144, I also have a 144,, or should say I HAD a 144,, untill my son decided he wanted to try it on his Camaro,, its been over 5 years now and he still "trying it out",, so I guess he thinks its his now,,, just like alot of stuff I've bought and ends up on someone elses car

you'd best check the cam you actually got. You may have the other, milder B&M cam.
214-224 .442-.465 112

The B&M 3444 hydraulic lifter small block Chevrolet camshaft has a .050" duration of 234 degrees intake, 244 degrees exhaust. Cam lobe lift is .3254" intake, .3400" exhaust. Gross valve lift is .488" intake, .510" exhaust, with standard 1.5:1 ratio rocker arms. The lobe separation is 114 degrees. Cam timing at .050" is: intake opens 8 degrees BTDC, intake closes 46 degrees ABDC, exhaust opens 61 degrees BBDC, exhaust closes 3 degrees ATDC.
Regards, Chase
