Hey again all -
I'm in stupid question mode again, trying to get a bunch of parts together for the Zed's Big Trip To The Workshop in a few weeks, the idea being to get everything done at once...
I've already sorted the Ford electronic ignition (from a parts car i've just picked up). Still looking for an Edelbrock manifold, almost resigned to the fact that i'll have to buy new.
As I've said in other threads, the plan is to get bolt-on stuff done to the 302 now, before the 351 rebuild/stroke early next year. so far, specs are -
1977 ZH Fairlane Marquis
302C/C4/BW Diff (2.73, i believe?)
K&N air filter
600 vac sec Holley
Edelbrock manifold (coming)
Stock Ford electronic ignition (coming)
brand new unleaded 2v heads with tuff valve springs to suit non-stock cam
Genie extractors and a twin 2.25 inch exhaust.
anyways - the question...
The cam's the only other thing i want to get done at the moment - can anyone recommend a suitable grind for that combo, bearing in mind i'm hoping to keep that cam once i go 351. I was thinking something like this -
Crane CD214-52 -
HYDRAULIC - Good idle with lope. Good all round performance with basic intake and exhaust modifications, strong low-mid range torque.
BASIC RPM 2000-4800

The car's only being driven occasionally, 99% street, maybe the occasional drag run. Don't mind a fairly lumpy idle, but it would be nice to be able to drive it to work once in a blue moon and not have to stress about stalling in traffic.
I'd imagine that would require something like a 2200rpm stallie?
thanks in advance
