I'm doing a cam swap for a guy in a 74 chevy pu 2wd that was over cammed for the application. What i'm working with is your basic 8.5:1 70's vintage 350. Poor flowing smog heads, 991 castings to be exact. Edelbrock perf intake, msd ignition, and headers. There is a 2" open plenum carb spacer due to him having a bird catcher thru the hood. The truck has a TH350 with a stock converter and 3.08 gears. He says he has a 4.10 rearend he wants to put in and is going to use a 31" tall tire. All this guy really cares about is being able to have good throttle response and being able to burn the tires around town. Obviously leaning towards a cam for good low and mid range TQ. Any suggestions?
