I just bought a set of vortec heads and now it's time to pick a cam. I'd like to get a hydrolic flat tappet cam for the following combo:\
1972 LT-1 350 block bored 30 over
1 5/8 headers
Edelbrock 600 CFM Carb
355 gears with 5 speed
Mallory Electronic Ignition
I have not been into the engine yet, but its a 1972 LT1 and I'm guessing it has flat top pistons. The car will be a street strip machine and I'd like a streetable cam that will rev up to 5,800 or so. Cruising at 65 MPH I'm at 2,000 RPM so the cam will need to have good power at 1,500 and above with my overdrive tranny. I don't mind a lumpy idle but I don't want the car to shake too much if you know what I mean. I'd appreciate feedback from anyone with experience with a similar set up.
