Sorry long post
I do not have a chevelle but I read your forum for engine information.
I just bought them Goodwrench 350 10067353 from jegs. This is my first ever engine project.
There are so many choices for cams and heads my mind is spinning. What do you recommend for my application.
1980 corvette. 4 speed weight on the title is 3150lbs
3.08 rear gears with 2.88 first gear in t10 trans. (Will be switching to 3.73 in the future)
Car is used 99% street, with an occasional blast down the 1/4 mile
I currently have the stock L48 in it and a best run of 15.4 @ 94 mph on old Goodyear ST tires
The only mod I've made to my engine are headers with sidepipes 1 7/8" primaries recurved the distributor for 36 degrees @3000 rpm installed a jegs quadrajet.
For heads I've been looking at these procomp a skip white performance with 58cc chambers to get the compression up 9.5 or a little more.
Cam looking at voodoo 268 or 276, comp xe268, 274, Howards 110041-10 Cams I am also considering are isky mega 270, 280 with the 108 center to build more dynamic compression.
I'd like to reuse my quardajet
Intake performer rpm.

Suggestions please

chris straub did have the patriot heads on sale recently though they are an additional $200 over the price of those procomps. I haven't read a single negative comment about Chris or anything he sells. Though, the patriot heads do have a smaller intake runner . . . 175 or 185, something like that. With the intake runner the rule of thumb (I think) is the higher the intake CFM the further the power band moves up the RPMs.
