i am building a similar motor for my 87 Z28 (385) and i used to have the summit cam with 282/292 224/234 .465/.488 with a 114 LSA

before i put this cam in i found out that 114 LSA actually lowered my hp/tq numbers, if i used the same came but with a 110 LSA my hp/tq number rose by about 10-15

i decided (with opinions from the guys on here) to go with the comp cams XE274: 274/286 230/236 .490/.490

since it is a stroked motor and that cam's power band is around 1800-5500 you make a butt ton of tq down low
i would stay away from the 114 LSA cams, what are the other 2 they sound like the 280H and the 292H

for my build everytime i sim a cam with more advertised duration than 282 my power numbers actually go down, for mine the XE274 the highest
