    This one will work nicely if you're gonna go Mass Air. The lobe separation is a little close for Speed Density......

    You could also go with Crower part #15511. It has a little more duration and lobe separation than the cam in the above link with a little less lift.

    If you're gonna go with 3.08's and the stock convertor I'd go with the Crower.

    Man it will sound good. You can’t beat the way a carburetor sounds especially w/a cam. Fuel injection is the best way to go all around except one thing. It runs on a little after you get off the accelerator and corrects the cam.
