i have had them all big, middle , mild. a 318 has such smallports thata big cam cant be used.
my advise is to keep dagrees under 268 addvertise NOT @.05 lift and .430-.450 lift at valve. any more cam and the small port 318 head cant make use of it. i had 360 with 280 degree .478 lift. this is the 1968 hi po 340inch. cam, this is the engine the factory rated at 275 hp, and NHRA refactored it two times finaly ending up at 325 hp. any way the 360 would pass anything but a filling station. If you haven't already, I would go to http://www.zddplus.com/ --- and get some zinc to break in the new cam. be sure and install cam per makers instruction.
