need help choosing cam
I am having the lower end rebuilt and would like some advise choosing a cam. pertinent information- 84 351W stock heads and ignition, I am positive the builder will have to punch the cyls. not sure if that is relevant, 2bbl 2100, T18(6.32) dana 300, 35 12.50, 4.10 R&P. I am sure if I do not specify otherwise, I will end up with a stock cam, which may (or may not) be ideal for my set up. While I did build the jeep with off road use in mind, it will see road time, not as a daily driver though. My right foot is pretty light...I don't ever see this engine turning over 3500RPM. Fuel economy is not a huge concern. I think I am more interested in low end T first, good idle and street manors if possible, good vac.,etc. I will, of course, consult the builder about this, but I would like to do some homework and bring something to the table.

Keep it stock.....for the most part, anything you do with the cam is going to raise the RPM curve and hurt your low end idle.....and the low end is where most of us spend out time....
