I'm partial to the 327/350 Chevy cam. It's a hydraulic with 222 degrees @ .050 and .447 lift. You can find them on EBay. I've seen a guy selling the whole cam change outfit for under $110. I haven't really checked though to see if it's a name brand cam and lifters.

Crane is making an improved version of the Corvette 327/300HP motor and it is nice. It is a dual pattern. Unfortunately, I can not find all the specs, but I'm sure if you call Summit racing and ask for the specs on the Crane Energizer for the Corvette 327/300HP, they will have it for you. The before mentioned 350 HP cam is for a high compression motor whereas the 300 version is for lower compression. I'm running it in a 9.5 to 1 , 30 over 327, Bowtie dual plane highrise with a near stock Q Jet and it's nice in a 36 Ford Coupe.

the original 327 ci, 300 horsepower cam is a hydraulic lifter with 398" lift on the intake, 410" lift on the exhaust with 112 degree lobe seperation. Its the same cam used in the 250, 270 and 300 horsepower 350 engines up to 1971. Its a good little cam.

I like the 350 hp /327 factory cam.This is the smallest cam I would use. I use one in a 283 balanced with flat tops. With 292 gears, 4 speed and a Q jet got 28 miles per gallon and could tac 9,000 in a 68 chevelle. Pulled the wheels off the ground shifting to second at 70 mph. Nice cam!!!

I have the Alliance Cams version of the 327/350 cam that I found last week while cleaning the shop. I will be happy to make someone the proud owner of this cam. It's new in the box. If you are interested, PM or email me.

"I have a 327. What cam should i stuff in it?"
can you be a bit just more vague?

Give us a lot more detail on the specifics of your engine/trans/rear end and vehicle.

proper camshaft

I thought about putting the l79 327/350 hp cam in my 327 but I also thought about the comp L79+ cam it comes in at 1800 to 6000 or 6200 where the original 342/342 222/222 447/447 L79 cam comes in at 2200 and goes out at 5800 both cams are just as good thou the comp cam has improved sound and is supposed to have better power.but the original has good power and nice to listen to the old heguda heguda note theres nothing like the old muscle car sound it produces . let me no if you decide to go with the comp cam Id like to no how the improved sound is if it sounds and performes better than the original It should be realy nice.
