Default OTS cam choice, 308, 180cc prolines, track heat intake

For the sake of getting to the track quickly as the season is already amongst us i am holding off on this 347 and throwing a 308 together then i am getting from another member on here. Also picking up some proline 180 cc heads from him that have been worked a bit

Not worried too much about low end, just want to get as much ET out of the car as i can. Compression will be about 10:1

4.10 gears, 3500 stall speed

Already have a TFS track heat that i will be putting on it.

Will have a C4 behind it from redneck performance. Can get the convertre speced to the motor.

What do you guys feel would be a good OTS cam to go with?

Call comp cams or anderson and ask them, but the AFM N41 cam is good and the Comp Cams xe-282 worked pretty well.
Big cubic inches + high rpms = holy sh*t

my xe 282hr worked okay, but you'll need a good stall
