COMP CamsŪ - Xtreme Energy 274 Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft, Part # 12-246-3 Dyno Sheet shows the HP (370 @ 5900 rpm) and torque (410 ft/lbs @ 3900 rpm) that cam makes using Dart SR heads and a vacuum secondary Holley 750. What's interesting is the power at 5100 rpm all the way to the peak at 5900 rpm is nearly the same.

Comp dyno graphs shows dyno results for the other XE series cams.

If you were to use the 292H, be sure you have enough compression or else it will be a dog.

The motor will be going in a 84 camaro...

the gears I'll give you.. tho. lite cars can be mighty fast/quick with 2.73's and a big stick..

the bigger carb I call fowl on.. a 355 cid will need the same air flow.. no matter what cam you slide in it.. it doesn't become a 455 just because you stuffed a big cam in it..
the bigger carb also hurts the low end torque that causes the need for bigger gears 3.90/4.10/4.56
so please explain..

I'd guess around 400 hp, possibly more. This would be an excellent time to acquaint yourself w/the Comp cams program, CamQuest. By entering the specs of your engine, it will give you an estimated torque and horsepower graph like if the engine were run on a dyno. If you need help inputting anything, just ask.

cobalt327 The XE 274 if one of those two have to be picked. More low end power and more power under the curve using the parts you outlined, and will be much better on the street. The longer duration of the 292 will want more rear gear and converter stall.
