and will not cause pinging problems. makes lot of truck torque and power and will work very well with your 2500 stall. You'll like this one.. Ditch the old school obsolete Streetmaster intake manifold.
A modern dual plane manifold will do everything better.
The cam is comp cams part # 12-209-2 275-279 219-229 @ .050" .462-.482 110 lsa
Will look into it. I'd like to stick with a single pattern cam if possible (single pattern has a more old school "rhythmic" sound unlike the dual pattern cams like my XE cam IMO) The streetmaster intake I have on my vette pulls harder than the Weiand 8004 I had on it, plus it has an oil fill tube which is a feature I need. Another intake option I may consider is an Edelbrock C-26 dual quad.
