I have a 351C 4v and am looking for a proven cam and or intake manifold to make some good street horses. I have 10.5 comp. headers, msd, holley 750, 3.50 gears, autotrans. I do not want to use a high stall conv. Anyone have this similar combo and know there cam grind number? I have heard people say there cleveland rocks but not knowing what cam they have. I am trying to install the right cam the first time. Any info would be helpful.

Crower makes a very good Cleveland cam. Mine is a 5.10 lift 289 advertised
duration cam. I have run it with a auto. and a manual trans. The auto. set up
was a little hard to hold at the stop light, so I put some Rhoads lifters on it and
it worked great. It is the cam I have in the orange Mustang right now. Crower will
make you a cam or give you one they think will work well. Crower cams are known
to work well in Ford motors. Tell them what you are doing and what you are looking
for and they will do the rest. Most of the other cam companys will do the same thing
for you. I just like Crower. My .02$ worth.

Would you consider a converter in the 2500-2700 flash rpm range to be high-stall?

You can run your combo with the stock converter but adding a little slip would make a world of difference, even with a mild camshaft...

I ran one similar to the one in my race car for a number of years back when I was street-racing my 67 and had no trouble with it at all...the converter was the main thing that got my otherwise mild 289 combo into the mid 14's with stock gears and 14.00's with 4.62's...

I'll leave the cam and manifold particulars to those who have current 335 series experience...it's been a long time since I've built a Cleveland...

Good luck with your combo!

The Ford Motorsport cam worked well for me. The specs were .510/.536 lift and 214/224 duration @.050. I used a 2400 stall (which is very streetable) and an Edelbrock #2665 dual plane intake with a 750 holley. Ran a 13.67 on street tires at 101 mph in my 70coupe. By the way the heads I used on this combo open chamber 4v. I'm sure your closed chamber will help you a little.

Nice numbers....you're hooking up pretty good to run that ET for the MPH...

I've had nothing but good things to say about the SVO cams for the W based engines but didn't have the experience to recommend one for the C engine...

I'm currently running the A333 cam in the race car...about the same specs as yours...

Isn't it amazing what losing some weight can do for ET's? *G*

Hopefully the original poster will read your post, since you posted it as a response to mine.....

Good luck with your ride!
