    Specs:
    1986 K5 Blazer newer (10,000) 350 4 bolt, Brand new Th350 with a shift kit No miles put on the tranny. NP 208 3.73 rear end. This is a fun truck no real off-roading. Just something that can tost those little neons with there fart cannons. I want to do something with the top end this year. i want this cam (http://www.powerandperformancenews...._Code=CC&Product_Code=12-243-3&Category_Code=) or something close to it.
    If you don't think this would be a good cam for me please tell me. I am up for anything. I want a cam that has a choppy idle I DON'T want a smooth running engine at idle. I also don't want a ROUGH dragster idle. (That comes later :D ).
    I am running a Edelbrock EPS intake with a good fuel system with a pair of shorty flowtech headers Dual 2.5" exhaust.
    What heads, Carb, etc should I run?
    Thanks

    I know it's like pulling teeth when you want a some what of a choppy idle but I would like the basic running range to be around 1500 - 6000RPM plus or minus some RPM.
    Remember this is a FUN truck. It will be drivin almost every day Mostly on the weekends.

    Thanks
    Adam
