I would put a 351W cam in it. I just built my 70 FB 302 motor and put the Windsor cam in. Changes the firing order to 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. I Used a Edelbrock hydraulic cam, lifter kit from summit. Part # EDL-7182 Specs are--RPM range-1800-6400, Duration@50 lift 224/234 deg int/exh., Valve lift .496 in .520 in, lobe separation 112 degrees. Sounds real good. Motor has a nice lope to it but not to much. I built another motor a few years back and put a Windsor cam in it also. Its specs were --duration 280/290, valve lift 472/496 which I believe is closer to the Hi-Po cam. The .496/520 lift cam sounds a whole lot better. Also you may ask why the windsor cam? Seems to me it just make the motor twist a little faster, sound better, being your changing the firing order around. Maybe it's just me. I also have a Edelbrock stage 2 aluminum intake with a 600 CFM carb (part # EDL-1406) Have some earlier model cast small CC heads on it i ported. Wish I had the AFR-165's on it like suggested above. That would make a nice top end. I am running a 4-speed with 4.11 gears. As you know in the end it is your decision what you go with.
