Cam choice
 
Hello i am wesley . And i am from holland. I am rebuilding a 305 yes i know its not spectacular but its my first v8

I wil geve the engine a edelbrock performer manifold with a edelbrock 600 carb also i want a better camshaft. . So now the question what cam can i run on a stock engine . I was thingking of the edelbrock performer plus 2102 but can i run it with my stock valvesprings ?


Thanks

I think that is a nice choice. Summit SUM-1102 may save you a few $.

Allthough not entirely nessessary, I would change the valve springs. It is a small investment,around $30-40 for a decent set to compliment that cam.

New valve stem seals while your in there also.

What heads do you have. What year is the motor. And what compression ratio do you have.

Yes i think even the smallest edel cam needs springs for most heads. Usally the spring are needed since they will decrease engine life and increase gas milage. So the factory engines have only enough spring for the stock cam. Tje effect is tiny but the oem wont spend a dollar they dont need to so most sbc springs in stock form are made for .400 lift and below 5000 rpm. Most after market cams will easily top these numbers.

Edel cams are good, the springs and timing chains are good quality but a little over priced.

Hello the block is a 14093627 and the heads are 14102187
In 1.88 out 1.5 i did a compression test and i came out with 159pci on each cil

What springs would you recomend ?

Thnx

These will do fine:

First you say you're rebuilding a 305 and ask what cam to use. Later on, you tell us that the cylinder pressure is 159 pci (I assume you meant psi). Do you currently have a running motor, but plan to tear it down for a rebuild? You couldn't have checked cylinder pressure unless the motor was somewhat together.

Wezz 01-07-2013 10:17 PM

Yes i mean psi . The engine was running good before bud i want to rebuild it and perform it a little .. But anyone a idea for the springs


Thnx.

the summit cam sounds about what you need. Maybe tech can help you dial it in.

Wezz 01-08-2013 02:31 AM

Btw do i need hydroulic roller lifters or are flatt tapped good enoug?

Wezz 01-08-2013 10:43 AM

Anyone? And how much hp can i get with this settup


Thanks

give a complete list of the parts you intend to use if you want something better than just a guess.With diligent work and a decent supply of "quality" parts, one horse power per cubic inch is easy to attain.

ok engine a stock 305 (code 14093627) heads 14102187 58 cc

vinniekq2 01-08-2013 11:43 AM
