I am building a 383 stroker in my 69 camaro.

My car is a show quality weekend driver. Do not race it at the track but I do drive it hard on the street occasionally. Need good vacuum for power brakes and all othee accesories - do not want a vacuum canister.

This is my build:
350 block 40 over
Edelbrock RPM Air Gap
AFR 195 cc heads
10.5:1 compression
Hooker 1 3/4" super comps
Muncie m20 4 spd
4:10 rear
26" tall tire

all in a stock camaro.

whould like cam to come in around 2,500 rpms - 6,000. I like a little lope to it.

give me your suggestions for duration, lift and lsa

Also Hydro roller or solid flat tappet?

If you have the money to go with a roller, do it. As far as a hydraulic roller goes, I would look at the 268HR (230 230 @.050 .560 .560 lift 2500-6000 RPM) It says limited vacuum in the comp cams catalog, but I think it will be fine. I have a friend with a 383 and a cam with 237 241 @.050 duration with .530 .530 lift, and his car is fine. The brakes are a little soft, but nothing unbearable. As far as a hydraulic flat tappet, I would look at the 280H (230 230 @.050 .480 .480 lift 2000-6000 RPM) this cam would work really well with a set of 1.6 rockers to get the lift up to around .510 and get a little more flow out of the AFR 195's. Both cams would have good torque, and stop around 5800-6000 RPM.
