    Call comp cams help line, the will be able to help you pick the right cam for your set up. If you get to radical, you might have to get your PCM reprogramed to do the duty of a diffrent cam profile. Just my .02 cents /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I used Crane Cams PowerMax 2030 for my 383 and it works great. You may want to look at the 2020 also.

    I called Crane last week and the guy was a total prick. I'd never use their products or call them again.

    I'm not sure if I like it..I haven't even started the motor yet. I need to though, just have to re read the Painless harness instructions. I rigged some exhaust up to keep the neighbors from whinning,LMAO
