4BBL Edelbrock card & intake, th350 transmission, 3.08 gears, 9.25:1 compression, 1.84 1.50 valves. Whats the best cam for this combo? Anyone have anything similar?
When I chose the cam for my stock 283 with a 4-bbl carb, I ran computer simulations with most of the cams out there. The 204°/214° cam produced the highest average torque and horsepower than any other cam. I put it in my 283 but I don't have it on the road yet. It is the Edelbrock Performer-Plus cam, Summit Racing 1102 or equivalent cam.Mike Goble said:We raced a 283 Nova with a regular RV cam, the standard 204°/214° special from most warehouses, and it worked very well in a mostly stock 4-bbl 283.
or you could have a 350 with that same setup and make 400-450HP easyPaul Wright said:the only way you can make that little 283 run like a bigger engine is to force 6-10 psi of air into it.
A little 144 supercharger is what you really need. With only 6-7 psi of boost you can have 350 hp.
