I am looking for cheap HP for my SS. I have purchased a set of Edelbrock TES headers and Edelbrock 3701 Intake for pennies on the dollar and would like to find a good cam to seal the deal. This is going to be a weekend cruiser but would like enough under the hood in case I need to put a Honda its place, hahaha. It's an 84 SS entirely stock with exception of the headers and intake I will be installing as soon as I am done resealing the motor.

PS.. I am trying to not put too much money into this engine as the ultimate plan is to do an LS swap which I already have from a personal car that was totaled.

Just save for the LS swap.

That's my advice.

I use a Crane Cams 2040 EmissionMax cam with TES headers, ZZ4 intake, and a ZZ4 PROM.

LS swaps in CA are tricky because of the utra strict emission laws there and the fact the enhanced OBD2 EVAP doesn't work with stock G body gas tanks that are non enhanced. Basically, the only legal LS swap in CA are the expensive GM Erod LS crate kits with the special legal swap parts and paperwork which used junker engines lack. Probably better off selling the used LS and use the money towards a crate.


SBC powered 1987 Regal with TES headers, ZZ4 intake, ZZ4 PROM chip, mini starter, THM2004R, 2500 stall converter, 2040 cam, CCC system, and 3.73 posi rear.

2008 ex NPS P71 Crown Victoria, cop motor, cop shocks, cop brakes, and Jmod.

My idle is still smooth.

Did you keep the original springs and lifters? I was between that cam and the next one up in size, part number 114142 grind 2050.

The cam included new lifters which I used, I reused the stock springs through I really should upgrade them.

I had a xe262 in a 305 ho 700r4 SS and it ran great. Had long tubes duals performer airgap and reworked Qjet and HEI.
Then I eventually swapped to a 600 eddy.
