Trucks are a bit heavy so don't overdo it on the cam, I have previously used a comp cam, Extreme part #12-246-3 with an Edelbrock airgap intake, which should work alright with your valve size, also a torque converter(heavy truck again) with a 2500 stall speed and a half decent gear ratio if 3spd auto 3.50 to 3.73 ratio and 3.73 to 4.10 if 4spd auto. Run a cooler on your trans always a good idea. Not the best heads though a set of vortec would be a better choice and cost effective. Oh 650 dbl pump Holley or 750 Edelbrock carb will work good on a truck. Let us know how it turns out.

|82CHEVY388||Ok enough said about the heads everyone I talked to about the heads say to upgrade. Most people say go with the afr 195 but they are a little pricey. Is there any other good heads I can go with to achieve what I'm looking for without breaking the bank. Anything in the $1000 to $1200 range|

I'd say you're looking at something along the lines of a Comp XE294

I need help with a cam selection
First off Im new to the site so please be patient with me. I'm building a 388 sbc for my 82 chevy lwb pickup. Just something to play with on the weekends. Its a 010 block from a 78 3/4 truck bored 60 over. I have a eagles rotating assembly that should bring it up to a 388. I have a set of camel hump heads with 2.02/ 160 valves. I need help with selecting a cam with intake and carb. I was hoping to get into the 400-450 hp range with something that had a good sound to it also. I imagine something with good tq because its a truck. Any help and suggestion will be grealty appreciated.
