first off how are you coming up with a 5.73 gear ?it's hard to beat a good 383 if you can hook it up. most guys around here run the same rules cars are a little lighter but they run 6.20 gear with 383 and turn her around 7g

yes that is the question!!! As every one knows the best cam will depend on your total package..heads, intake, carb etc.....I have had cams in 406s that I thought were the best, and I would change cams and found even better combos....I have got 3 cams that I love in any bigger CID motor, unrestricted 2 barrell class.....One from Crower is the absolute best(for now, hahaha) but it is a custom ground piece and spendy.....

six is right. i try a different cam in just about every engine i build.....by dumb luck, sooner or later you'll stumble across one that you like. a custom grind will almost always be better. it can be tailored to optimize the flow characteristics of the heads/pistons/etc. you're using.....aerodynamics are going on INSIDE of your engine as well as outside of your car.

USE THAT "X" PIPE!!!
