it all depends on where you want to make peak Hp. do you want peak at a low, high or mid. rpm range? I suggest you find crane cams, they may have some info on there site. I am by no means a chevy explert (i know jeeps/amc) but if you search around, there should be all the info you need.
good luck

Comp Cams XE268H would be a good choice.

Comp, Crane, and Crower cams are good. Comp and Crane are moderately priced. Crowers are more expensive. They use more modern technology in their grinds.

There are also PAW, and Summit cams that are decent. I have one in my SBC 400. They are cheap, and they work. They are older technology, but I'm sure they were pretty cool back when the came out.

I suggest a dual pattern cam. You want more flow % from the exhausts when using stock heads. Go for a split lift/duration cam.

i want a cam that increases low end torque,and since i dont know what size the stock cam is until i pull it out,is there a stock size in a sbc 350?
