I just brought home my first big block. It is a 454 block #3999289 bored 0.030 over with 353049 heads. The cam is a Comp cams SFT that I think has too much duration for what I need. The numbers on the front of the cam read 322, 332, V706. I believe the first two are advertised duration, and the last is a part number. This is going in a 70 chevelle that I drive mainly on the street. I may take it to the strip someday. I would like to hit at least 500 HP. I need decent vacuum for power brakes. I also run power steering, no A/C. I read alot of good things about the Lunati cams here, and need some recommendations. I would like to stay with a solid flat tappet. Here is more info:

Iron heads 353049, 122 cc open chambers
Edelbrock RPM air gap manifold, 850 cfm carb
700R4 trans with around 3000 stall converter
12 bolt posi with 4:10 gears
Keith Black 203 pistons, 10:1 compression?
1.75" primary headers, 3" collector, 3" exhaust

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Agree with Bob on this one. Also, did you have the heads cc'd as far as chamber size? If they really are 122cc, your c/r is likely just under 9/1. Those pistons are listed as 9.1/1 with 119cc chambers. c/r will make quite a difference when picking out a cam, so you need to be pretty close to what's actually there. John

I have a Clay Smith C-292-8-B cam. It has about 8 Hrs of running time on it. Has .570 lift. with a 1.7 ratio rocker. This was a really nice cam I just changed to a solid roller and added N20. So I no longer need it. If you are interested let me know.

I'd like to bump this. I found my heads are 118cc chambers and my compression ratio is more like 9.2:1. I would like to change to a voodoo cam in a solid flat tappet version. Any suggestions? Thanks.
