I would go one step bigger in the Voodoo line. The Voodoo cam I have specs out like this:

Ad. duration 268/276
.050 duration 228/232
Lift .489"/.504"
LSA 110
Power range 1800-6200

You will love everything about this cam. Good idle vaccuum (12hg at 750rpm), plenty of power throughout the entire power band, and a nice lopey idle. I have never been so satisfied with a cam as I have been with this one. It's just about everything you want is a great street cam and then some. And you should have no problem running a stock stall if need be.

What's spec's on the torque converter? Stepping up much on that cam will need a higher stall over stock to realize any performance gains.

So if I went with this cam;How will a stock converter do or is it best to go with a stall converter according to cam specs.And how will the stall converter affect daily driving down the highway at cruising speed .

That cam will be great in your engine. It will work with your stock converter but will work even better with a higher stall converter. I would use a 2500rpm stall converter with that cam. 2500 is perfectly fine on the street. We run a 3000 hughes on the street just fine and I have a 4800 8" ATI I am about to put in my car that ATI says will work just fine on the street.

I sold this cam to a customer with a 327 with the l2166nf 30 pistons, 700r4, 4.10 gear

He has been 12.70's, he switched to AFR195 heads and went 12.50 but spun

Now he has taken the exhaust off and added a set of Dynomax Bullet mufflers

I really didnt want to sell him this cam becuase i thought he wouldnt go with enough converter, he now has 4,000rpm stall, with a 350 3500rpm stall should be just fine

Here is his youtube video with that cam & AFR195's

Imho, that 262 VooDoo is better in a 9 to 1 CR engine and their 268 VooDoo better in a 10 to 1 CR engine so go from there!

And you should be darn close to 10 to 1, imho...

I would say it all depends on several things. Heres a link that I ran across that experimented with a vodoo cam, Dont know if it helps. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SBC-C...mZ250410948558

I have the Voodoo #103 268/274 .489/.504 lift in my 383 with Vortecs 10.5 to 1.

UDHarold told me to go with the #104 but I pussed out. At idle 900rpm have a 4-speed so no stall blah,blah. I have 13-14 inches of vacuum. These cams idle a lot better than you would expect.

Should have put the #104 in there.

What I find funny is they compare a smaller voodoo to a larger crane cam. Gee I wonder why the crane made a little more power? DEEEEERRRRRRRR
