Re: 1979 304 Horsepower?
I _HIGHLY_ recomend the crane cams H-260 grind camshaft for the AMC 304/360's. I personally know of 5 engines this cam is used in (including mine) and all reviews of it are outstanding. good power without sacraficing torque. not lopey, and a good strong idle. Aditionally I have an edelbrock intake and carb, so my mileage has been shot compared to the motorcraft 2bbl. A friends 360 with the 2bbl and the h-260 didn't see too much of a performance improvemnt, but it did run better than his stock cam.
