Re: Cam and manifold choice 408W
Well, with 408 cubic inches, your going to make some torque anyway. What kind of compression ratio do you have, what is the cfm on the heads, what kind of carb. They all play a big role in your max rpm. I would build your motor for a 2500-6000 rpm. Lots of cam companies have cam specs listed in suggested rpm, find a few and let us pick them for you. I would say a 232/232 in the low .500's lift would suit you very well. It will make decent torque but still flow up to 6000 rpm.
