With small cams like that you do not need to get carried away with porting stock vortec heads.
Most of the flow gain from porting is found at higher .450++ valve lift.
You can clean up the ports to good effect but do not attempt to make race ports. its not nessessary and will not help.

That cam works very well with vortec heads on a 350 and 10:1cr, performer rpm intake and 750 holley/edelbrock carb.
375hp 400+ ftlbs torque.
Thank you for the info on my combo, I actually picked this cam when I was gonna run self ported 305 heads, lol. Like I said at the first of this thread, this motor is goin in my '88 S10 with a th350 or th400, haven't decided yet, which will be used as my daily driver/sleeper truck.
