i would like to know the stock cam specs for a '69 396/350 hp
and the exact differences between the 325 hp vs. the 350 hp - i know the cam is a little hotter in the 350, but not sure if that was the only difference between the two motors.
p.s. i found this in the archives:
A 1967, 396ci, 325hp valve lift is .3983 intake and exhaust. For the 350hp valve lift is .4614 intake and .4800 exhaust.
is this true for the '69 also?
with a new comp cam 280h in my 396, guess it really doesn't matter if the motor was a 325 or 350 hp if that was the only difference - COMPETITION CAMS CAMSHAFT SPECIFICATION SHEET
