The key to the sound is the LSA 106*-108* will give you what you want. The dirt-track/circle -track cams are a good choice for what you are wanting. You can always pop it in N when you come to a stop sign!

Before I'd use a poser cam, I'd just as soon retard the ignition and pull a plug wire. Instant 'lope' LOL

No, but just select a cam w/about .450"-.480" lift, 230 degrees-plus duration @ .050" lift and a 106 LSA. That way, when the fun wears off of sounding fast you can get those Vortec's and maybe actually BE fast. Or at least faster!

right cam.

I take it this is a daily driver? You are right to research this, as the camshaft is a critical component in the overall engine performance. The 882 heads are not very good and leave a lot to be desired. I have used a Comp Cams high energy 268 on a simular combo with great results. Great street cam with good driveability. I would however suggest the entire K kit. Springs should be changed, proper valve springs are a must. Also screw in rocker studs. Higher lift and faster ramp speeds can cause stock press in studs to wear or pull out. Good luck with your project!
