double humps

If you are running a standard trans. you will be okay with the 350 hp and the saturday night special idle quality , with automatic you need a stall converter due to the low vacuum it will carry approx. 10 inches.The 350 hp cam only makes a small amount more hp then the 300 in real dyno numbers.20-25 hp more but the torque is almost identical .I have dynoed both and I would go with the 300 hp .

so i should go with the 300 horse cam huh? will this have any sound to it? what about idle? keep in mind im going with a th350 with a full manual valve body.373 gears also. running super40 series flowmasters as well turned down after the front seat.

your motor is a 275hp version since it has the camel hump heads. THe 275hp and 300hp motors use the same cam if I remember right. the 350hp cam will work fine but it`s a little out dated. Check out Lunati`s Voodoo series cams. the 262 or even the 268 voodoo would be a great cam for your motor.
