Is anyone running one of the Extreme Energy Comp Cam..If so how do you like the performance....I'm thinking about this one for a 383 that I'm building the CC part number is 12-254-3..
Int-Dur-EXH.
294-306
Ent.050-Exh
250-256
Int.-Lift-Exh.

I'm not sure which Hyd.cam to go with... I'm also thinking about a Hyd. roller, any thougts or opinions as to which way to go...The motor will be 11.1 with 195 cc heads and 1.6 roller rockers...3000 Stall and 4:10 gear...Intake not purchased yet, but I have and old Victor Jr. that I might install on it....

We have the XE 284 cam in our 406. It has a nice nasty idle and it runs great. This engine has tremendous torque and rpms very nicely. the car has 4:56 gears and a 2400 stall converter.

I have the comp Xtreme Energy XR294HR cam. It's a hydraulic roller. I haven't put it in yet, but was told by the builder that in the 427 small block we're building, it will help to produce 525-540 horse.

My 408 has the XE262 in it. It made roughly 400hp and 500ft lbs of tq. Nice flat tq curve, wish I knew how it drove. Its been stored between the fender wells for a few years now.

Im going to run the XE268H-14 cam. I was told this cam would idle and give me good adequate vacuum allowing the injection to work well due to the extra lobe speration. Im looking into heat now for the garage otherwise I should be running it this spring when things get warmer.

With that combination and a roller.

Need to be in the .575-.600 lift range to get the best out of those heads and make some real power.

And Comp Cams is not gonna make it happen!

I have no use for a generic cam, thats what they are.

Sounds to me you have a little more than a warmed over street engine.

Call, Lunati, Isky, Crower.

get something thats going to complement your engine, not just make it work.

Thanks guys ..After thinking about this a lot more and your thoughts I think might just go with a solid roller cam and see what can get out of the motor and head combinations...Big Al, what intake would you recommend for this application...

I just installed this very cam in my 406. Although I have not run the car yet with it. With the comments I read here, and not to hijack this thread, what do you guys think about my set up?

406ci * 10:0-1 cr * Edlebrock RPM air gap intake * Edlebrock RPM aluminum heads (177cc 69cc)* Demon 750 * Crane roller rockers * MSD 6AL and MSD Blaster coil * Turbo 350 3800 stall * 3:73 rear * 245-60-15 tire. Frame connectors, south side machine lift bars.....

Intake would depend on your cylinder head.

Single plain for sure.

Ask the maker of the head what they recommend.

I have always run with great success the Wei-AND Team G

But with my newer version AFR heads, the EDELBROCK Super Victor has correct intake ramps.

That is why I say ask the Manufacture of your heads, or get a single plane intake that matches the port ramp.

raised port heads?
Vortec heads?

heads are very different and need the port ramp matched 1st.

What ever heads you have ask them for all the options.

Check out the specs on my cam. The part number is in my signature. This was recommended to me by Joe Sherman. I'm very happy with this cam, and I'm guessing it should make in the neighborhood of 600hp when I finally go get the car dyno tuned. 259/268@.050" and .645/.648" lift. On a 107* LSA and I installed it on a 104*ICL. Hope that helps.

The cam you listed is a good cam it made a lot of power in a 350 stalled/auto 78 Malibu. Drivability was good i ran a 3200 stall. Whether it's the one you need, It depends on how much you actually want to drive the car. You can get caught up in the " I've got the biggest cam they make" syndrome.

FYI, Harold Brookshire of Ultradyne Cams is back with Lunati. He created the VooDoo cams most recently.
His cams flat work, wicked idle sound, lots of power where you want it.
The very best IMHO.
