Customer q:

I need help with a camshaft selection. The truck had a 305 tbi. It was replaced with a 260hp gm replacement engine and a gm 700r4 replacement transmission. Can you help with a camshaft selection?

The truck is my daily driver. I commute 140 miles one way and 100 miles of that is the interstate. Fuel mileage is 10-14 respectively as I run 33" tires with an axle ratio of 3:73. The exhaust is routed through flowtech headers via a 2 1/2" exhaust muffled by flowmaster delta 50. I am in search of increase fuel mileage and a little more power. I already like the combination. At some point I will have return to tbi. In addition, the 350 is running on an edelbrock 1406 on top of an edelbrock 2701.

I researched a few cams:

Edelbrock 2117

Edelbrock 2103

Comp cams 252h

Comp cams 250h

Even at that any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Thank you for giving JEGS the opportunity to assist you with your technical question. The cams you have researched will work well. However, I think with the combination you have the 2102 Edelbrock is the best choice. Should you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
