Please don't hate me, but

I did a big search on the site and I still need to ask. So, here it goes. I want to upgrade cam. Nothing too choppy, but noticeable idle. I have a 327, 202 camelback heads, HEI, headers, Holley 600, 373 rear end, T350 tranny. All else stock as far as I know. I was looking at this one http://www.compcams.com/Technical/Se...mber=12-210-2. It is a big jump and I just want to be sure it is right for my setup. Thanks guys for your help.

When I clicked the link it brought me to a page saying

"Online cam specs not available for this part number.
Please call Cam Help™ at 800-999-0853 for specs."

That link isn't giving me anything. Just saying cam specs aren't available online.

EDIT- Ghetto why the hell are you always like 2 seconds faster than I am

In the 327 engine it should sound better than in a 400. Its been my understanding you will get more lope with the same cam in a small cube engine. Thanks for letting me see that page It lays out the cams where you can compare them. Your link didnt work but you can try here.

http://www.compcams.com/Technical/CamHelp/Default.asp

I have 6 lifters not spinning in my motor so a cam is in my future also. I want a lopey sound but dont want to lose all the bottom end torque. Mine is a 355 so I will go a little bigger. I want to get about 500 lift.

That cam is a little mild but is a good choice. To see the specs go here 12-210-2

A better choice for your setup is the XE268H. You can see the specs on it here XE268H

I have used the XE268H in a mild 350 and was very pleased with the results. It does have a slight lope and works fine with the stock converter.

Note: Use Comp Cams kit (lifters, springs & retainers). If you buy everything at the same time it is a considerable savings. Break the cam in properly and immediately change the oil & filter after the cam break in. You will be ready to rock after that!

Let me start by saying that I HATE THIS SLOW, POS COMPUTER. Now having said that. I know the page was up with the specs when I copied it. Don't know why it did not work. Here it is http://www.compcams.com/Technical/Se...umber=12-205-2 Thanks for all the quick replies. Stupid computer.

I posted link to wrong one. Frisco got it right. Sorry guys. Thanks Frisco!!!

The cam you just listed is not the same cam as you first asked about. It is even milder.

Which cam are you looking at?

12-205-2 has gross lift of .425/.425 (this was the second cam you listed)

12-210-2 has gross lift of .454/.454 (this is the first cam you listed)

12-242-2 has a gross lift of .477/.480 (this is my suggestion)

Now I just have to decide which one to do first Cam or intake manifold. Think I will go with the Edelbrock performer EPS (idle-5500). Which do you reccomend first? Thank you.

Why not wait until you have the money for both . . . to do the cam you'll have to take the manifold off anyways.

If you are going to do one then the other I would do the camshaft first. Get the big project out of the way. Swapping manifolds is easy for the most part. You'll notice more power out of the cam change than the manifold.

Your intake choice is very good. I'd do the cam and kit first. Then the intake.

Better yet, buy the parts as you can and do all the changes at one time. That would save a set of intake gaskets at a minimum.

Sorry Siggy, I'm a slow two finger typist. Your reply is correct.

You're doing good Siggy, in comparison to myself most people are much much slower.

What do you guys think about him going with an XE-262 over the XE-268?
