Comp Cams XE270AH is (in my opinion) the best cam for streetability and performance on New Edges.
Since you have an SN95 (judging by your name) give Comp Cams a call, they'll work with you to find exactly what you need.

I disagree, the rep I spoke with was incredibly helpful on choosing a cam.
He even went so far as to find the best springs to fit my budget and talked me out of a heavier hitting cam for the sake of streetability.

just because he did his job and sold you the springs you would need made him helpful lol?

i like the comp 270s as a blower cam they make decent power.....but there are alot of other cams out there if your looking for a cam for great sound and with a great power band...look at the cms stage 1 cams....the power band on them are great and they have some good sound to them also...you can go with the cms stage 2 cams also that sound bad *** and they have a very broad power band...

Re: Cam types

If ur pistons dont have valve reliefs u can run the stage 2s.....the cms stage 1s will work great.....ur going to want to run manley or comp high lift valve springs also....if the motor isnt together yet get...reliefs cut in the pistons and u can go with a alot better cam profile... And u mean 380 to the tires on the bottle?

Re: Cam types

With stock heads and cams ur nowhere near 330...with thst compression with stock top end ur prob at like 270 to the tires..give or take.....with the compression only 10:8 u cant make it to 380....they must have meant flywheel hp....with stock unported pi heads and some small cams(if u know for a fact u dont have relifs) best it could prob do is around 310-315....but car prob still runs great....if u need anymore info or anything shoot me a pm with ur number and I can help u out more about the cams and stuff...since ur motors forged throw at least a 150 pill on it
