stroked a 305
I can't imagine duplicating the mileage again but I'd like to build one for myself. Practical having something that will work cheap... and run too.
Most satisfying results of any small block I ever built. including 400 based stuff.

|RaticalRods||I think ill try the xtreme 4x4 262 cam, it seems like the right direction for me, its definitely got the torque i need.|

|BigRoy1978||not trying to bash...but to get good power out of this motor is gonna need compression. Not saying its not possible, 305 Sprint cars out here get around 600+ hp from thier 305's...but they have some work done to them...A LOT of work...|

flat top pistons are being put in, so around 9:5:1.
and thanks for the heads up on the rpm range, ill take a look at that.

If you take a look at that build link I posted, you'll see that the XE268H cam they used made best power at 6,100 rpm.

|RaticalRods||stall is stock, well a v6 stock stall and gears are stock but sorry no idea what they are..ill have to jack the truck up to determine that.|

ok, no idle isnt what i am aiming for, just would like a noticeable change. The heads are stock but have heavy springs on them and the pistons are flats, it was estimated that it would be close to a 10:1 cr.
If the xe262 is the way to go then ill do that, i was just ready about how the 270h was an older design and liked higher cr, thats why i was leaning towards that grind. Thanks for the input.

We're right back to what heads (and thus what CR) are you going to use? What gear ratio and stall speed?
If it's stock heads (should be 58cc not 68cc), I would NOT run anything any 'beefier' than a Comp 262 in your C-truck. Forget about the idle sound, unless that's ALL you want and to drive a pig otherwise.

i think i am leaning towards a comp cam magnum:
Magnum 270H Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft & Lifter Kit
RPM Range: 1800-5800

|RaticalRods||Yeah sounds like fun, i cant wait. I am only looking for a cam because i need to buy one anyways, so i figured id go as big as possible with this set-up because honestly there isnt really a money difference between a stock cam and a little beefier cam.|

|American Muscle||I have an 86 chevy C-10 with a nice little 305 in her. Not a street/strip but fun to drive and turn a few heads. All i have is headers, edlebrock performer intake, edlebrock 600 carb, 700r4, and most inportant i got a set of gears(3:42) and this thing flies. I wouldnt do anything internally to a 305. Now I have seen some pretty wicked sounding cammed up 305's but that same cam would do lots more in a 350. If thats all you have then roll it.|
|08-23-2010 08:19 PM|
ok well i think iam sticking with the heads that came with it, they held a .480 lift cam before it was torn down, the springs were replaced to hold that much lift and the heads are 68cc. So a little for information for my build.
That being said, with those heads and a 5.0l Edelbrock rpm II with 600cfm carb.
Any suggestions on a cam... i would like a rougher idle, good torque but also hp for a little track time (i know its not going to be turning stunning times, but id like it to do as well as possible)
