like i said which 1 is a better cam the cc503 or cc305 its goin to be a dd driver but im lookin in2 the 847 cam as well i dont want a cutom grind cam just something to have fun with so anybody who has these cam tell me how u like it and driveability on them thanx
Go to Bullet Cams and get one with a 110* or less LSA

You could even take a 227, 845 or HOTCAT at 110* and do better than then a 847 for the steet. With Street Cam durations tightening the LSA will giver you more torque and versitility.

847 you are going to need to rev it 6500 or more.
WHere as a smaller cam duration with a tighter lob will work better on a heavy car.

I run the 503 in a small cube LT1 with a 2200/3.73. It isn't bad for daily driving, but it does leave something to be desired in the torque department off-idle (280k stocker felt stronger below 3000rpm). Pulls hard up top.

My set up feels way understalled to maximize the cam's potential, from a 1320 stand point.
YOU ARE RIGHT!!

Because of the weight of our cars
Adding an extra 2 degrees advance on HOTCAM Class Cam will make the engine idle smoother and more low end poke. Most cams are either Set at 3 or 4 degrees advance. Great for a 3500lb or less car.

Changing to 110* or 108* LSA will push the torque curve lower and tighter band below 6000rpm. Makes a big difference in a heavy car. Just works better for the street.

As for Stall .. 2200 is too low.
Get a 3600 stall with a modern Stator set up.
It will ROCK you Head !! Regardless of CAM..
They are just as streetable.
Drive with soft foot and the locking converter will provide near same mileage.
