Cam Choice with CR of only 8.4:1
I'm working on a mild build of a 1977 305. I've got a Edelbrock Performer intake with an Edelbrock 600 4bbl for it. I would also like to put a little better cam in it while I've got it apart. I been looking at a couple of cams (Crane Energizer 274H06 and CompCams Magnum 270H) but it seems that they say you need a compression ratio of at least 8.75:1. This motor has a CR of only 8.4:1. I really dont want to do any head work on this motor as its only going to last me a year or so. Would one of these cams not work for me or would you recommend something else?
