Camshaft selection

Hi guys,
as I have just bought a 347 stroker kit I would like some other peoples imput on camshalft selection (what are you running).
Its in a ZC Fairlane it will have edelbrock performer rpm heads 2.02 valves
performer rpm manifold, holley mech fuel pump, highenergy sump, rollmaster timing set (compition 9 keyway), mellings hi vol oil, Cast scat crank, scat I beam rods, speedpro pistions, molly rings, clevite berings, yella terra roller rockers, 600 street avenger holly.
It will be behind a C4 auto and for the moment I will have to keep the 2.79 ratio diff but I would like to change that to a 3.55 in the future.
I would like it to keep the static compesion around the 9.5 to 10.5 as I would like to run it on perm unleaded or Ethenol 98 to 95 ron.
Any info on a cam for that would suit my aplication would be apricated.

Re: Camshaft selection

Do you want to run flat tappet or roller?

Do you have a budget for your cam choice or is money no object?

Re: Camshaft selection

I do have a budget an I thought I could fit a roller when I could better afford it as it adds about another 1100bux to the bottom line and would only take about a day turn around to fit. Either a flat tappit(but how often do you have to re adjust your rockers and is it an easy task to do?) or a hydrolic as there is less matinance. but Im open to sugestions.
oh also it will ahve a set of tuned length extractors(pacemaker ) and 2 2.5 inch system going to some edelbrock muffs.

Re: Camshaft selection

I built a 331 for my wife's Mustang and the cam I have for it is a Lunati retro-fit roller cam.

Dur. 215 Int 224 exh.
Lift .524 Int & exh.

LSA 112 deg.

The engine has GT-40 X305 heads, Performer RPM intake, Road Demon 625 cfm carb, Doug Thorley Try-Y headers (Not worth it because cam has 351 firing order) and C4 with stock converter, 8" rear with 3.50:1 gears.

I think I paid about $350 for it and $175 for the rollers?? Can't really remember. I built the engine for the street, low and mid range torque.

Steve

Its a retro-roller that uses standard ford roller lifters with a special cam.

My roller lifters alone cost US$420

Re: Camshaft selection

The cam is Lunati part number 55123.

One or the other, or both, I either got direct from Lunati (tech line 662 892-1500 Monday through Friday 7AM to 5PM CST) or from Summit Racing (800-230-3030). But I would bet more on Lunati. Don't quote me on the prices though. I will look for the receipts. I am know I didn't pay anywhere near $1000 US or AUD.

Re: Camshaft selection

yeah I was looking at the 351 option but I wanted a C casting block from the same era and I didnt realy want to change any of my numbers as the chasis engine gearbox and diff numbers are all the same if they were diffrent I would of plus I have now bought to many parts to change my mind now.
Thanks Ohio xb for the info!
