as I posted earlier I am building a 351c for my 27 T glass bodied roadster. I am at buying the cam and since this choice effects the heads and more I was hoping for some input on two cams I am looking at. I am building a car that weighs abt 2000 lbs with a std trans.
comp cams 280H-10 cam kit, a hydrolic cam that has a lift of .53 on both and a duration of 280. Price is $513 for the kit.
comp cams fc290rf-hr10, a hydrolic roler cam with a lift of .578 both and 290 on the duration. Price is $989 for this kit.
Question is, how much difference can be expected for the roller cam and what alterations would I be looking at. The cost is definatly a concern but if the return in performance justifies the price I am all for it. Thakns for any help on this one.

In a 2000 lb car with a stick no less, almost any cam would make that thing fly!
The HR is overkill.
