I am building an 85 roller block to be used with 3 bar heads,1.6 rockers, exploder intake, accufab 70mm throttle body, 96 19lb mass air, k&n drop in in stock airbox. Equal shorties, Mac H pipe, 50 series flowmaster system.
It will be a 306 with fresh bearings and pumps, arp bolts in all the right places.
I like the gutty toque the stock engine has when carving the hills. I'm running 3:27 gears and cruise smoothly @1700rpm, 55mph. I get 21-25 mpg.
What cam would be best to run from 1500 to 5000rpm?
Would an E cam be close?
Thanks for any opinions.

To confirm, you are running the stock cam right now, right?
I don't think there are any cams that will run from 1500-5000 RPM. The stocker itself kicks in around 2500. Some aftermarket cams may match that, but most up the power band somewhat. An E cam, for instance, ups the power band.
To be more specific, no, an E cam will not be close.

If you want down low grunt then you can stick with the stock cam which is not terribly bad.

If you do wanna swap it out the 264 or the TFS1 are good little upgrades.

Thanks all, I'm leaning towards the stock cam at this point.
