bowtieorbust Thanx there (DoubleVision) you alway's give real good advise also, the 270 mag's came to mind a time or two, and was told that 9.6 would be a good c/r for the EX268 and the EX274 from comp, I guess i'm just like every one else whow want's to see what a big nasty cam would do before i reallised went to big. So thanx DoubleVision i believe you've made my mind up, and now i can breath easy now.

DoubleVision you could step up to the smallest comp cam magnum line, it`s got 224 duration and 470 lift, it has a lopey idle and it has good low end power.

bowtieorbust You seem to give pretty good advice most of the time lluciano77, witch cam would recamend for 9.6 c/r?
07-05-2004 12:35 AM
lluciano77 The 268 is too small for use with a 9.6 compression ratio. You should go with a bigger cam if you want performance. The 268 was made for low compression smog motors.

killerformula Don't go bigger than 268 for sure. I wouldn't step over the line of 264 (imo the perfect cam). That's a heavy truck, build your power off the bottom, a cam will dog you out and piss you off in day to day driving, not to mention winter starting.


I'm totally dominating the posting in the engine forum!!!!

camshaft question?

Does anyone know wich one of the Exstreem Energy cam's from comp, come's close to the sound of the Performer RPM cam from Edelbrock for a 350 sbc, because if i dont like the H268 comp cam. Im gonna go bigger for the sound, because i believe with 9.6 c/r, and W/P torquer head's, a (3.11) 1st gear, and 3.40 rear gear's, i should be able to handle a bigger cam, in my 3,900 lbs short bed GMC pickup. (Oppinion's Please)
