Hey,

I just was wondering if anybody had used the comp 270H cam with a performer intake and 600 vac.sec. holley. This is on a c4 auto with stock gears currently. I might want to upgrade the gears first to 355 or 373. Car will have ported stock heads with headers. Would I be better off with something milder for 50% street, 50% highway use?

Any input would be helpfull.

Thanks.

Perfect! Just be sure to use the OEM or aftermarket 4 hole one inch spacer.

I'd go with the Performer RPM intake, more power between 1500-6500 if you decide to go with the 3.55-3.73 gears. Also, this is about the RPM range that the 270H uses, correct?

Comp cams lists the power band for that cam as 1800-5800 which sounds good to me. Right now with my current setup I doubt I get over 4000 rpms on the highway. I'm not sure what RPM the C4 shifts at (probably 3000 RPM or so). I was going to get a RPM or Stealth intake but, at $400(canadian) plus for those or $227 for the performer. I just figured I probably would not wind it up that high anyway(past 5500).

Is the spacer worth it? What about on an Offy 360 deg intake?

They do not work well with stock engines.
