Post SBC engine setup

Iam planning on running a 350 w/ a comp 284xe cam(close to .540 lift), 041 heads w/ 2.02, 1.6 valves, 64cc combustion cambers, 1.6 rockers and mild port and polish(something i will do in my garage). With screw in studs and springs for the cam. Victor jr intake, 750 holley dp, HEI.
Does this setup sound good? It will be a daily driver. Suggestions welcome.

you will get tired of that cam real quick on a daily driver, go to something under .480 lift and 224 @.050 duration. it will give you more usable horsepower and torque on the street. unless you drive at 5500-6500 rpm to the corner store and back and like different idle speeds and manual brakes.

for the street I`d also loose the victor Jr, you don`t need a open plenum high RPM intake for the street, you`d be much happier with a Performer RPM air gap or something similiar.

Bob is correct. That is way too much cam.

Is the 540 lift before the 1.6 rockers?

It does not matter, those heads will probably not flow well at that lift without professional port work.

The intake and carb. are high RPM only parts.

That set up for high RPM power. Low gears etc.
Low end will suffer severly.

the cam is .507/.510 with 1.5 rockers. I will probably go with the 1.5's. I will also be turning the motor ~6500 no problem. The car also has 3.73 and a 3500 stall.
