Re: Cam for a 289
I have the 282S in my 289 with ported Windsor Jr. heads and a Weiand Xcelerator intake. I'd say if you're looking for streetability and torque, you might want to aim a little lower. My engine REALLY 'turns on' at about 3000rpm, but lowest cruising RPM that it really likes is about 2000, anything lower than that and it starts chugging. A dual plane intake like an RPM or Stealth would probably really help out the low-end, but unless you're planning on running at least 3.73 gears, I'd probably shoot for something just a little more mild.
