Ah ha, lt4 springs should work but I'm sure the guides need to be cut down.

Re: Cam Suggestions

I would typically run abit more spring with that cam depending on the intake manifold. With tpi it wont go much over 4800-5000 so you can get away with bit less spring pressure. Hsr miniram i would stiffen up as cam will go to 6000 in a good headed 355. Lobes are pretty aggressive

Re: Cam Suggestions

I agree with the XFI268HR-113 camshaft. Its like an LT4 hot cam but better ramps and lift, plus the 113 LSA makes it easier to tune and pass smog.

The Manley 22407-16 springs will handle .600" lift, too.
