Re: BEST Cam, lifter, spring combo kit 390
If there was one cam that gives maximum power at both low and high rpms, everyone would use it!
On the strip, drivers use a big cam because they spend most of the ride at high rpms. To get past the problem on the low end they might use a 4.11 rear and a 3000 rpm torque converter, so basically they start the race at 3000 rpm. On the street where power from idle to 4000 rpm is desired, and enough vacuum for power brakes, a "mild" cam is much more fun to drive.
Final choice should be based on where you will be driving, size of engine, carb and exhaust set up, heads and compression ratio, transmission, tires and rear end. Comp cams will sell you a cam with lifters and matching springs
Based on what I have read, the Edelbrock RPM would be a good intake for you.
I'd rather have a hundred friends than a hundred dollars.
