Can't seem to find the cam that I'm looking for that will fit my set up. I'll list what I have and give me your suggestion.

Trickflow 23* Street heads w/ 58cc combustion chambers
Edlebrock Performer Air-Gap intake
Flowtech afterburner headers w/ 2.5" exhaust all the way
Proform 1.5 ratio roller rockers
Keith Black Hypereutectic Siv-O-Lite flat top +5cc pistons
Scat 6" connecting rods

Prefer to keep my revs around 6000-6500 at the highest. Its for a 4x4 pickup. Everyday driver with some grunt.

Thanks

Yea, what squeeezer said+ Those rockers are going to piss you off by the time you toss them. Don't ask!

Well you know that I have to ask. Go with another brand or different ratio or ditch em?

If you can$$ use the Comp or Crower stainless rockers. The Proform and the Pro-Comp rockers that My son bought wouldn't hold valve lash with a hydro roller. After removing both we found the Trunnion bearings were sloppy as hell. Summit took both brands back. FYI the Summit brand is Pro-Comp.


Cam wise with that converter stay at 230*@.050 or lower.

Thanks for that advice. I think I can spare some extra cash for them. The cam I was looking at is the Comp Cams Extreme 4x4.
The specs are:
218*/226* @ .05
.462"/.480" lift with 1.5 Rockers
111* lobe seperation

I'm still looking, but this one didn't seem to bad for my application.
The Comp Cams Stainless Steel Rollers aren't much more than the ProForm so I'll get them instead. Whats your take on this cam???

im guessing with those heads and cam you will not be seeing 6000 to 6500 rpm

well you can but im thinking you will just be making noise
will make a good truck motor 5200 to 5500 maybe rpm
you prolly dont want unnessesary revs anyway
wont a tighter lsa be beneficial to you????

is that cam gonna be ok with a stock converter??????
id assume at this point it will

Im not worried about hitting 6000+RPMS. That was listed as a maximum RPM range. The 5000rpm range is more of what I'm looking at. I don't have a stock torque converter. Its a B&M. I might change it out to a 2500 stall. As for the lobe seperation I'm not sure. I'm trying to keep the revs low for my torque but still dont mind my peak HP coming in a little higher if neccesary. Could you list a cam or specs you reccomend?

That cam looks good, might as well go with 1.6 rockers since the heads should handle the lift, and it will give you some free horsepower.
