    I am running a MAF TPI setup with a stock chip for a 89 camaro on my 350. I am only running 19 lb/h injectors though. I am also running a stock stall converter in front of my TH350.

    I am looking for a cam that gives me good torque and will work well with my TPI.

    What cams are you guys out there with similar setups running? Thanks
    Justin

    Best way I've found to get proper cam selection, is to call the manufacturer. Both Crane and CompCams have always been very helpful when I've called. Typically, with a FI engine you want to reduce your overlap to keep the computer happy.

    Are you building a 283? Or did you select the wrong engine type?

    Anyway, nice torque for a 283 /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    haha! Just scroll down. Was proving to someone that a 283 can't "stomp" a 350 when built the same.
