Yes, and yes I think it's a good choice. Put all your requirements to Comp for a custom cam and see how close it gets to that cam.

The Crane HR232 is a better choice for a street driven 363ci Windsor... It will make as good top end power, with better mid range than the Comp XFI.

Here is build on the same combo you're planning using the Crane... :)

was really good to see the results of pretty much exactly the same combo.

G'day millard555,

As a side note - if you run a COMP grind be sure to install a composite distributor gear - COMP cams have been known to wear excessively if you run a stock hardened dissy gear. Piece of mind.

Actually you just need to run a -9 cam which is made of steel rather than the -8 cam which are austempered iron. I found this out the hard way...3 cams in 3 engines! You also need to use the zinc additive they make. Trouble with comp is they supply -8 cams unless you specify a -9 and they are useless when it comes to help with these problems.

That's quite a generalised statement! It won't go near 300rwkw without a very good set of heads, intake, exhaust, injectors etc...

If you model this cam in Engine Analyzer software you'll find it has quite low dynamic compression, it opens the exhaust valve too early and you need to put a bunch more static comp in for it to be effective.

that it is. i just know what i have seen it produce on a dyno (which again can vary dyno to dyno). the entire engine setup is critical no matter what you are doing.
so i agree with you.
for what its worth i remember the following details of that engine
12:1 compression (on pulp)
MSD ignition
AFR 185s (not sure what series but im guessing they would have had work done)
347 stroker.
not sure on intake tb or maf size. cant remember what size extractors or pipes it had either.
