November 28, 2007hi there i have a 1984 chevy 4x4 with a 350 engine,edlebrock performer carb and intake,th400 tranny and 205 transfer case.i have a 4 inch suspension lift and 3 inch body lift and im running 37x12.50x15 super swamper ssr's. I want to put a cam and lifters in it to get more bottom end.I would like a cam that is kind of lumppy but will still run fine. i am not impressed with the performer cam and lifter at all/ what should i run to get the best bottom end performance????????
November 28, 2007I'm sure I will be the only one to reply to this being how this site has been ever since I have gotten here.
I really can't help you too much in this department. All I can tell you is to look into Comp Cams.
I assume that your bottom end that you are seeking is torque related. So you want to get off the line quicker type of situation is what I am gathering.
You would be better suited to regear then put a cam in. Gears are expensive though. I do not know what gears you are running but if you are turning 37's then I sincerely hope that they are not stock and am almost certain that it has been regeared.
Well sorry I can't really help you but I figured I'd at least reply and tell you Comp Cams may have some ideas for you.
January 3, 2008I agree.
Call Comp Cams and they will set you up with the best cam for what your looking for,,If they have to custom grind you one.
As for gears. I hope your running at least a 4.56 and a 4.88 would even be better!
January 4, 20084.88 gears would be the best for your bottom end. I have them in my F150 and they make a big difference in the low in.
August 21, 2011I agree with Bob and gears would be the best thing to give you more bottom end response. If you go with a new cam I hear good things about Comp cams but they are not cheap
