Building a 383 next year. Budget limited due to baby daughter.

So, I have to stick with the heads I have now, which are fully ported by Lloyd Elliot, 2.00/1.56 valves, flow around 272/191 @ .600.

Now, peak hp isn't going to be all that high due to the heads, but Lloyd agreed with me that the tq and HP curve under peak should be very fat and the car should be fast just because avg hp will be high through the rpm range.

So, with that in mind, how much cam? If I'm not going for peak numbers, do I shoot for an XE 236/242 or do I step down to something like a CC306 and use the slower opening ramps to my advantage since with 383 cubes low speed tq won't be an issue?

The 306 cam will be a nice cam for a 383 works well with your range of power. Id go with the 306.
