I've considered a cam before, but I didn't want to get valve springs and a converter, so I was goin to get a 270h comp cam. Well, I want to do it right, so I will be getting new valve springs and a stall. Since I'm doing this, what cam do you suggest now? Remember, this is still mainly a street car. Thanks

Tell us about the rest of your engine's intake, heads and exhaust.
If it's up to the rpm's and the flow, it may be wise to go bigger as long as your changing the convertor and springs.

A 289 I guess?

The 270h is plenty of cam.

I too would highly recommend the 270 grind, especially on a basically stock motor with a few bolt-ons. I'm running a 270S in a stroker with all the horns and whistles , and it's not enough 'stick for my application.

Your stock converter should be just fine, but DO install the recommended valvesprings
