After talking to way to many tech lines much head scratching,deliberating, and confusinon, I finally just called Alex and that was the best called i made should have done that a long time ago. I order the 282S for my 68.
Now I can't wait to get it here, installed, and get to the track. I know how my car runs with the wrong cam, can't way to see how much it picks up with the right one!

That's the came reason I deal with Alex; my new cam is in the mail from him now! Alex answers my embarrasingly rookie questions and always knows EXACTLY what I need to do. The parts are shipped that day or the next.
Thanks again, Alex

I ran the 282S cam from Comp Cams in my old 302 motor for years. Decent performance but never really had enough top end for my liking.

Despite its numbers I rate the cam as mild.
Just my opinion. I drove the car for several years on a daily basis and never felt I had too much cam. Only wanted more.

My new 347 combo blows my old 302 away, granted its not a fair comparison with AFR heads and 40+ cubes, lol

The HEAVILY ported 289 headed 302 in my mustang used the 282S intake lobe along with the 294S exhaust lobe, ground on a 110 degree lobe seperation. (The extra exhaust duration was mostly for the nitrous... and it's the intake duration that dictates the rpm range of the cam)

That engine pulled strong right up to 6800 rpm. It pulled cleanly from around 1800 rpm, but didn't come on REALLY hard until around 4-4.5k rpm. This was with a Victor Jr. intake.

I'd say poor higher rpm performance with this cam on a 302 cubic inch engine could be traced to something other than the cam...

Good Luck!
