correct you are, but picking a cam now without an idea of what other future upper end parts will be used...ie...heads and intake would be a waste, for a custom cam the designer would also want to know this....you need to decide now what final build will consist of to be able to choose /have a cam designed to meet your specific goals/needs

You said no letter cam, but the E-303 fits with stock everything and pulls hard from 2500 to 6000 in my 88 just fine. Still even has the stock 165K mile valve springs in it!!

It holds 15" of idle vacuum and works great for me right now.

I think I may just grab a trickflow trackmax(221/225 @ .50 499/510 lift) then grab a milder intake than I had thought before talking with you guys like a edlebrock. Then I'll just hold off on anything else until I get a block worth building.
