There are a ton of cams out there and picking one that's right for you is impossible without knowing what you have and what you want it to do. Your best bet is to contact one of the cam company tech lines. I think Comp Cams has a toll free 800 # for just that reason. Answer their questions and they will tell you what you need to make your car do what you want it to. Good luck.

Advance Auto has a Wolverine cam "Blue Racer" with a really good sound & good performance.
512 lift, 320 duraration. I have it in my '74 302 with about the same setup as yours. Cam kit, lifters & cam for $160 I believe.

Yes Advance Auto. Don't have the rpm ratings anymore. Just go there & ask. They should have a book with all the info on the cams. When putting a performance engine together you need to "match" the performance parts to what your gonna use the car for. Example: Don't put a huge carb on a stock engine. My engine has stock pistons, that cam, dual exhaust, Holley intake & 600 carb. Pertronix ingition, Accel wires, cap & rotor. Nothing major, I just wanted a quick engine. I also added 3.25 gears to help.
