I have a 305 sbc. with stock heads and standard bore and stroke, with an edelbrock performer intake with a BG Road Demon jr 625 cfm carb. I have a summit cam with
204/214 @ .050
.420"/.442" lift
Is this cam too big for my set up? On desktop Dyno i am around 300 hp and about 295 ft lbs. The engine sounds like it has a pretty radical cam in it but i didn't think the cam was all that big. I just wanted some other opinions on it.

No,thats a pretty small cam in my eyes,yes,it will sound bigger than it would in a larger cube motor like a 350,but should only have a little lope,you do have more carb than you need,maybe its being a bit fussy and making it sound that way,Its hard to say without hearing it,plus everybody has there own idea of what a big cam is.

Vacuum leaks and pcv valves without proper venting on the valve covers can do some weird stuff to.
