Ok Fella's need some recomendation's on a cam. This will be a bracket car all I want is consistency not trying to rotate the earth. No roller(BUDGET) Solid or Hyd. don't matter to me.

64Falcon Wagon just guessing 2900lbs.
302 .030 maybe 9.1
Big chamber 351 heads with bigger valves and some port work
Performer RPM intake 650 DP
Glide with brake 8in. conv 5400
5.14 gear
Would like it to be pretty agressive on the bottom end most all 1/8 mile racing.
Shift around 6200

Thanks Randy

What Alex said is good or maybe the Comp 31-639-5 race grind if you want to get a little more aggressive and exceed the rpms your aiming for. Those heads can go to 6500 easily.

It's a mild rumpety rump, with a ton of torque.

The extreme energy comp cam XE268H would work good with your compression. Its 224/230 .509/.512 power range 1600-5800.
