I'm planning on going through JEGS for a new cam and lifters, can someone help me find the right one for my engine combo?

Small block 350, stock rebuild, edelbrock 600cfm carb, streetmaster intake, hei ignition, hotter coil, headers and dual 2.5" exhaust, 2000rpm stall converter, TH350 tranny with a shift kit, stock 7.5" rearend with 2.73's. I'll step up to a 8.5 with 3.73's so imagine that was in :D stock heads with pressed in studs.

I plan to have it a street/strip car and need something to wake this thing up, I prefer a rougher idle :D Oh, i have power brakes also.

heads

if you just want something that sounds sweet , you could throw in a cam now and sound good cruising around. Everything is inter-related on this stuff. Put a cam in , then the stock valve springs ain't cuttin' it , the press in studs show their ugly head, you break a couple stock rockers, then all its really doing is making more noise and using way more gas.

If all your budget allows at this point is a cam , then keep that in mind with the results you can achieve.

i'd go long on the master card and get the heads, ( patriot vortecs look great for the money ) rockers , pushrods , then the cam.

Why a 600 cfm carb? With all that how about something like a 650 to 670 cfm range.
