Nope,

But it's a great cam for a lightly modified mostly street car running on pump gas. It's got a bumpy idle.

Dub,
I don't have a sound clip for you, but we one in our '65. It sounds great running through headers, cherry bombs and duals.

270 is a great street grind The 's' could be worth as much as 10-15 hp/torque!

I don't have the 270S but I do have a solid that sounds like that. Nothing close to a sleeper sound.

is the 270H alot better than the 268H cam?

is there a 270S available for the 351W?

do you need to upgrade your torque converter or gears when gettign a 270H?

270S is the same for 289-351W. You just use the 289 firing order. I don't like anything larger than a 268 S or H for a stoned stock engine. No headers, no 270.

gears are suggested, and the 270H is the largest cam you can go with the stock converter. Headers and 4-bbl carb as well.
