Re: i have a question

The X303 is WAY too big for that combo. It's meant more for a 347 stroker with AFR 185s or something similar. If you want an off-the-shelf cam, I'd recommend something like the Trick Flow Stage 1 or one of the smaller cams from the Comp Cams XE line.

Re: i have a question

The cams he mentioned should work with your setup. I would just make sure you valve springs are within the specs recomended by the cam manufacturer.
