That's a sweet 'lil screamer! Sounds good!
Can you give any hints on the cam since you're going to try something else?
I still don't want to divulge cam specifics (don't know exactly how far off this one really is yet), but I'll say it's .700+ intake, .600+ exhaust, 300°+ intake, 310°+ exhaust, and with timing events that definitely did not agree with this combination (lol).

Most of us old guys think they got it wrong.
But regardless, just seeing those "double humps" brings back a lot of memories. Especially the ones that dictated if you had solid lifters and a 283 or 301, you had better have a scatter shield, because the things would rev like a Dygrinder.
Keep us posted.
Rest assured, I am about as old-school as it gets. I love taking these parts everyone else considers "junk" and making big #'s with them.
That said, there's no denying "new school" technology, and there ain't no rules saying you can't apply that technology to old school parts.

We've barely scratched the surface at this point...there's plenty more left to come.
At this point, my biggest personal surprise was how well that lowly ol' 3310 stood up against that HP Holley (80496). The .bsfc was notably richer @ 5000 with the 3310 and that's where the HP made a bit more power than the 3310. Aside from that, it was dang near a wash.
Not too shabby for a carb that was thrown together from my "parts donor" pile.
